Welcome to the School of Language Studies (SLS)! The SLS hosts a student orientation at the beginning of every term. This school-specific orientation is in addition to VIU’s new student orientation. The SLS’s orientation includes information about the Intensive English Program (IEP), attendance policies, program policies, maintaining visa status, academic integrity, SLS faculty/staff, tips for success in the IEP, SLS student events and activities, and VIU resources such as the library and online portals.
Orientation is generally help the second Tuesday of the term from 9:00-11 am. All new and returning IEP students are expected to attend. Students who start late must attend an individual orientation with their advisor. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
*These are estimated dates for future orientations. Confirmation of the date will occur at least 30-days prior to the first day of classes.
