Late Arrival Request Form

It is important to arrive on campus in time for International Student Orientation (which typically starts on Sunday of the third week of August), since this is when you will complete all mandatory check-in procedures and register for classes.

We recommend that you make every effort to arrive in time for the start of International Student Orientation.

However, we understand that sometimes plans change and you may need to adjust your travel arrangements to the U.S. Each case for a late arrival request is reviewed individually; approval or denial will be based on the individual merits of your request.

Arriving late may cause serious academic consequences. In addition, you will register for classes late and may not be able to get the classes you need.

(Graduate students may not use this form. Graduate students who wish to request late arrival should contact their academic department.)

Complete this form and a decision will be emailed to you within 48 business hours.
