Pre-Arrival Newsletter Archive

Prior to the start of each semester, the staff of the Office of Global Education publishes a series of Pre-Arrival Newsletters. To keep our international student informed, the newsletter is packed with important updates, checklists, and resources for your reference.

For the convenience of our international students, we have archived the following recent issues in case there is an important feature, article or information piece that you might have missed or which you wish to revisit. Enjoy!

If for any reason you are NOT receiving our Pre-Arrival Newsletters, please contact the Office at:
