Exchange: Late Arrivals
Request Approval to Arrive Late
If you are not arriving in Tucson until after August 7, you must complete the following steps:
Submit the Late Arrival Request e-form in UA International ( located under "Orientation" on the menu) and wait for approval. If you are approved, you will receive an email with instructions for completing the check-in with ISS.
Even if you are arriving late and will miss the orientation program, you are still required to register for orientation in the Next Steps Center.
Complete the Immigration Tutorial online. Submit the Immigration Tutorial e-form (link provided at the end of the tutorial).
Bring your immigration documents (DS-2019 and passport) to complete the in-person portion of your late arrival check-in (dates and times listed below).
The latest date undergraduate exchange students can check in is Monday August 27, 2018 at 9:00 am, and the latest date graduate exchange students can check in is Tuesday, September 4, 2018 at 9:00 am. If you cannot arrive by that time, please email your SASE Coordinator to learn about applying for a future term.
Know the Consequences
ISS will accommodate your late arrival, but you may face the following consequences:
Late registration for courses (it may take up to 1 business day after check-in to be granted access to register)
Limited class availability
Late registration fees (review Dates and Deadlines on the Bursar's Office website)
Even if you do not attend orientation, you will still be charged the orientation fee for Late Arrival Check-In.
You must enroll full-time for immigration purposes to maintain your immigration status. If you do not enroll full-time after checking in, your SEVIS record may be terminated, and you may be required to abandon your program and depart the U.S.
