When should I arrive in Minnesota?

Your I-20 document indicates a program start date. Per US immigration regulations, this is the last date that you may enter the US. The first day that you may enter is 30 days prior to your program start date. Within those parameters, you should plan your arrival so that you can rest up from jetlag, attend Immigration Check-In at the ISSS office, and attend any required events or activites at your program.   More information about choosing your arrival date is available from ISSS here:  http://www.isss.umn.edu/new/arrivaldate.html
