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.
