Late Arrivals

Request Approval to Arrive Late

If you are not arriving in Tucson until after August 7, you must complete the following steps:

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Complete the Immigration Tutorial online. Submit the Immigration Tutorial e-form (link provided at the end of the tutorial). 

  4. Bring your immigration documents (I-20/DS-2019 and passport) to complete the in-person portion of your late arrival check-in (dates and times below). 

The latest date you can check in is Monday, August 27, 2018 at 9:00 am. If you cannot arrive by that time, cancel your admission and email International Admissions to apply 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)

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.
