Congratulations on your acceptance to Florida Tech!  As you make your plans to arrive, please remember, check-in and orientation are your first responsibilities as an international student in the United States.

As an international student, the ISSS Office will be your primary point of contact on campus. Our role is to help you acclimate to Florida Tech through our services and act as your primary liaison with the United States Department of Immigration. Your status in the United States is our primary concern.

The Office of International Student and Scholar Services has made arrangements for a one-time courtesy shuttle service for first-time international students arriving into Orlando International Airport (MCO).  Be sure to visit the Airport Pickup webpage to review details on how place your reservation for airport pickup. You must have a reservation in order to secure transportation.

Information concerning airport pickup (FREE!! for first-time "initial attendance" students; see link below) and specific orientation information will be sent to you several times before your arrival. It is extremely important that you read and follow all information so that your arrival and check in at Florida Tech will go smoothly.  International students who are transferring to Florida Tech are required to check in with Admissions; current Florida Tech international students who are changing their education level are required to check in at the ISSS Office.

Before your arrival, be sure to review  important predeparture and arrival information as well as the  International Student's Resource Guide for important information you need to know as an international student coming to the United States.  We also recommend you visit Homeland Security's "Study in the States" website for information on how to study in the U.S. and how to maintain your visa status.  

International Student & Scholar Services provides a specific international student orientation program which will be outlined on the orientation schedule.   This orientation session is mandatory for all new students.  You are expected to arrive on time for the orientation session. Since familiarity with your immigration rules and responsibilities is a requirement of U.S. immigration, your failure to attend orientation could result in termination of your status as a new student, so please plan your arrival accordingly.
