New Student Late Arrival Form

This is a mandatory form for late arrivals (after May 28, 2024)

If your arrival in the US is planned after May 28, 2024, please contact your department to request late arrival permission. It is essential to obtain written confirmation from your academic department, confirming your full-time enrollment status for the Summer 2024 semester. Towards the end of this form, you will be required to upload the department's written approval for your late arrival.

Please be aware that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) may deny entry to F-1 students who arrive after their program start date. Once you secure permission from your professors and obtain approval for late arrival, a Designated School Official (DSO) will add late arrival remarks to your SEVIS record and issue an updated I-20.
