Pre-Arrival Support

​  ​​​​​ Prior to your arrival to the United States, you will be very busy preparing for your departure from your country. You will need to obtain a student visa, buy an airline ticket, arrange for transfer of funds, pack, and say goodbye to your friends and family. You might be feeling excited, nervous, and sad all at the same time. There are so many tasks to complete and very little time!

In the weeks preceding your arrival, International Student and Scholar Services (ISS) will send you weekly emails with information that will help you with your preparation for your arrival. In case you miss any of our communication, you can also find the information below. We hope that the information within these pages will help you plan for your arrival in the United States. Again, welcome to DePaul!
