Arrival in the United States

Arrival in the United States

Congratulations and welcome! We look forward to having you on campus.

To live on campus, you must have already completed and returned the housing application and have had your living arrangements confirmed by the college. If you have not applied for housing but wish to live on campus, follow the instructions in the Housing email sent to your Maritime email account.

Different students are allowed to move in at different times. Make sure your dates are correct.

Regimental students

2 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 9

Civilian and graduate students

2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20

All international students must attend an orientation session Friday, Aug. 26.

If you arrive before your check-in time, you must make off-campus living arrangements.  

After you have checked in with housing, you must check in with the Office of International Student Services in Baylis Hall. Make sure you bring copies of your:

  • passport
  • F-1 visa
  • I-94 arrival/departure card
  • Form I-20

You will also need to complete a new student arrival form that will include your emergency contact information. 



If you have any questions contact Laurie Zinberg, coordinator of International Student Services, at lzinberg@sunymaritime.edu.
