For co-enrolled students and other visa holders beyond the F-1 visa holders, all documents must be submitted and processed prior to the day before classes begin for the desired academic term. B-visa holders cannot enroll under this visa designation.

Arrival & Orientation Dates

Students holding an F-1 Visa are only allowed to enter the country 30 days prior to the first day of school. These dates indicate the earliest a student may enter the United States. 

IMPORTANT: Orientation is mandatory for all New F-1 Students and Transfer F-1 Students. Failure to attend the posted orientation date or arriving late to orientation will result in an immediate termination of a student’s I-20 and students automatically will be moved to the following term. No exceptions will be made to this policy.  We recommend that you plan to arrive to the Bryan/College Station area no later than 24 hours prior to the orientation date to ensure your attendance.
