Welcome International Students and Visiting Language Instructors! CIE is your home base for getting situated on the UMW campus. We assist with immigration, issue F and J visa documents, and help you organize pre-arrival logistics. We’ll walk you through International Arrival and Orientation, then assist you with practical matters about life in the U.S., employment eligibility, and maintaining visa status.
