When to arrive

  • Undergraduate Students arriving on campus who have traveled internationally should plan to arrive between July 17 and Aug. 9, 2020, allowing time for a 14-day off-campus quarantine before any in-person, on-campus contact is made.
  • Graduate Students will be required to attend the Graduate Student Orientation. In addition to the Graduate Student Orientation, all international graduate students must attend an Immigration Essentials workshop.
