If I'm unable to get a visa and arrive on campus by the first day of the autumn quarter am I allowed to arrive later in the quarter or do I need to wait for the start of the winter quarter in January?

We recognize that travel restrictions, particularly for our international students, mean a portion of our community will not be able to return to campus this fall. If a student is unable to obtain their visa and arrive by September 27, they should work with their advisor to ensure they are able to enroll in their courses remotely.  Students may enroll in remote classes before they obtain their visa. The Office of International Affairs will work with students to defer their immigration document start-date to the next available quarter or assist with other challenges you may experience.

Regardless of your status, the Dean of Student’s Office is here to ensure our international students are connected and supported.
