Students holding an F-1 Visa are only allowed to enter the United States 30 days prior to the first day of school.

Orientation is mandatory for all new international F-1 students and transfer international 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.
