You are required to arrive in Bloomington on a specific date each term. If an emergency prevents you from arriving by that date, you may be able to receive permission to arrive late.
Fall 2021 semester
For fall 2021, you need to make every effort to arrive by August 11, 2021. This is the date on your I-20 or DS-2019. If you have an on-campus housing contract, you can move into your housing assignment as early as August 7.
If you are unable to arrive by August 11:
- Undergraduate students: in order to start your semester off right, it is important that you arrive by the time classes begin (August 23). We will work with students on a case-by-case basis.
- Graduate students: work with your academic department to determine how late you can arrive.
Submit your arrival date in the U.S. Arrival Date and Bloomington, Indiana Arrival Date forms found in your Atlas Pre-Arrival Checklist. Our office will contact you with additional information if necessary.
Make sure you read our guidance related to fall 2021 and check-in information from Residential Programs and Services.
Spring 2022 semester
For spring 2022, you need to arrive in Bloomington by January 5, 2022. We are still finalizing details related to housing and check-in and will provide more information as it's available. But, you need to plan to be in Bloomington by January 5.
