8. Make your travel arrangements

Please arrange your flight plan to arrive at the Eau Claire (EAU) airport on Sunday, August 28, as close to noon as possible. Your international advisor will meet you there and drive you to Glenwood Commons for check-in to your apartment. Once you have booked your flight, complete our online Arrival Form with your flight information. If you cannot arrive before 3:00 p.m. on August 28, please contact your international advisor.

Note: Effective beginning November 8, 2021, the Biden Administration in conjunction with the CDC is now requiring that non-immigrant, non-citizen air travelers to the United States show proof they are fully vaccinated with a World Health Organization (WHO) approved vaccine series before boarding a flight to the United States. An individual is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after receiving a one-dose vaccine series, or 14 days after receiving the second dose of a two-dose vaccine series.

The mandatory International Student Orientation will start on Monday, August 29.

9. Send in your final school records

Mail official, original, or certified true copies of your school records and graduation certificate (if applicable) to the Admissions Office. Provide a certified English translation if the records were not issued in English.
