Late Arrival Policy

A student must arrive on campus by the start date listed on the I-20 or DS-2019 which is the start date of classes.

Undergraduate

The current "Change of Semester" policy for Undergraduate Admissions for Undergraduate Admissions is that the application can be moved to a new term if the request is made before an admissions decision has been made or it is requested within 30 days of the original application.

If the "Change of Semester" is requested after an admission decision has been made or 30 days after the original application, the applicant must pay the $145 application fee again. The student may request in writing a waiver for a $100 reduction to the International Programs office.

Graduate

In Graduate Admissions, an applicant can request one "Change of Term" without having to pay a second time. After that the applicant will need to reapply to the university.
