New Student Arrival and Orientation

International Student Arrival

Welcome to the University of Dayton!

Transitioning to the United States from your home country can be both exciting and challenging. We’re here to help make the process go as easily as possible for you and your families.

New international students must report to campus before the program start date on the I-20 or DS-2019. On the program start date, required activities will begin such as Bridges (required for academic students) and IEP Placement Testing (required for those studying English first). Missing these activities could seriously jeopardize your immigration and academic statuses.

Getting Started:
