INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

When preparing to come to the U.S. to study, you should travel with no more than $500 USD. Also, do not bring all of your possessions. The local airports (JFK International, Newark Liberty International, and LaGuardia Airport) are 10 to 20 miles from the undergraduate campuses. It will be difficult to travel with more than three bags and/or suitcases. You will need to be prepared to take a taxi from the airport to one of the campuses. Taxi fares can be anywhere from $40 to $75 depending upon the airport distance from the campus. Make arrangements to arrive in the U.S. on the first day of Orientation, Sunday, January 22, between 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
