International Student Welcome (ISW) and the ELL International Student Orientation (ELL ISO) are mandatory. This year, these sessions will be taking place during New Student Orientation (NSO), between January 5th and January 6th. Both ISW and NSO are critical to your success, by providing you information on immigration, understanding online learning, introducing you to academic success services, and student services. 

All new students can register for NSO (which includes registration to ISW), through their myBVC email accounts. Here's the link for registration.
