Orientation Welcome Letter

Fall 2013

Dear Student,

We are delighted that you are joining us at Utica College for the Fall 2013 semester. The Orientation Program for international students will be held Friday, August 23rd, and Monday, August 26th, 2013.  The program will be held in 261 Gordon Science center. This program will start promptly at 8:30 a.m. and will last until 3 p.m.

The second day of Orientation will provide you with assistance in completing paperwork and registering for classes, a campus tour, banking information, and information concerning U.S. immigration laws pertaining to working in the U.S. and traveling in and out of the country. Please bring your passport, I-94, visa documents, and proof of health insurance to the Orientation Program.

There are two important items that we need to draw to your attention before your arrival.

The housing forms are only available online, information for completing the forms will be sent via email. International students may move into the residence halls by August 20th. We would like to make sure that you are rested and ready for the beginning of your semester!

Utica College requires all international students to have health insurance.  A completed “Medical History Form.” is required for all incoming students. Information will be sent via email on the process for completing the form. You must complete pages 1 and 2 of the form and have your family physician complete pages 3 and 4. The College also requires immunization against measles, mumps, and rubella for all students. By requesting a health physical and immunizations in your home country, you will save the time and expenses of having them done once you arrive. This form may be presented to our office when you arrive.

Should you have any concerns or questions we encourage you to contact the Office of International Education. We look forward to meeting you.
