Be prepared for going through immigration upon your arrival to the U.S.

Have your original, signed I-20 ready to show the immigration officer, along with your passport and US visa. Make sure that your I-20 and your I-94 card are both stamped with “F-1, D/S”; keep the stamped I-94 card in your passport.

If you submitted your travel plans to JWU and are scheduled to arrive between 8am and 9pm, a representative from JWU will meet you at the airport, bus station or train station and bring you to the hotel or to your residence hall. The representative will discuss with you the plan for the next day and what you will need to do before your classes begin.

If you will be living on campus, a representative from JWU will take you directly to your dorm where you will be given a JWU welcome folder, including an initial schedule for your first few days on campus.
