Preparing for your departure is both exciting and overwhelming, we’re here to help if you have any questions. Here are some of the things to check off your list before you arrive:
Make sure you have all the right documentation
Your visa, passport and other important documents must be in a safe and accessible location. Keep them together in a folder and be sure to make extra copies just in case.
Make your travel arrangements
Make sure you book your travel in time to attend the first day of classes. If possible, allow yourself a few days to settle into your new environment.
Finalize your accommodation
There are many housing and accommodation options available for international students. It’s important to organize your housing before you arrive so that you are prepared and have somewhere safe to stay. Should you need assistance in booking housing, please contact your ELS representative.
Attend your orientation session on your first day of classes
Our orientation program for international students is an opportunity for you to learn about campus life, meet other students and take in important information on making the most of your experience at ELS. The orientation can help you feel more prepared for your studies and help you adjust to life in the US.
Airport pick-up service
All ELS Centers offer an airport pick up service upon arrival to the US. If you would like to arrange this, please contact your ELS representative.
