International Students Arrival

As you prepare your arrival to Minnesota State University Moorhead, remember you should plan on arriving prior to the start date listed on your I-20 (F-1 students) or DS2019 (J-1 visa holders). This date includes the dates for international student orientation. You may enter the U.S. up to 30 days prior to the start date on the I-20 and should be on-campus by the start date. Please make your arrangements accordingly.

Free Airport Pick-up service is available only on the dates listed:

  • Spring 2023 Semester - Free Pick Up at Fargo Airport (FAR) will be from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm on January 4 & 5, 2023.

If students are given permission to arrive late (due to visa delays), students are responsible for getting a ride from the airport to MSUM. Late arrival permission will only be given up to the final SOAR (registration) session. No permission will be given for arrivals after the last date of registration.
