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:
- Fall Semester - Free Pick Up August 15 and 16, 2022, 9 am - 9 pm.
- Our on call after-hours number during this time is 218.443.1654
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.
Please note: You must select your final destination as Hector International Airport Fargo, North Dakota or airport code FAR. MSUM will pick students up ONLY from the FAR airport and NOT the Minneapolis, MN airport or O'Hare International Airport in Chicago IL.
Fill out this form is to notify International Student Services (ISS) of your upcoming arrival at MSUM and provide information on any transportation assistance that may be needed.
