Arrival and Orientation

Welcome and orientation activities will be held by the Office of International Programs (OIP) for exchange students just prior to the University-wide new international student orientation and the Beginnings orientation for all new students. Participation in the exchange orientation and the University-wide orientations is mandatory.
Information about the Exchange Welcome and Orientation will be sent by email to admitted students prior to their arrival to Binghamton. More information about the international student orientation program can be found at

New exchange students must arrive before the start of the Exchange Welcome and Orientation activities. The Office of International Programs (OIP) will notify admitted students of the date by which they should arrive.
Please note that this is generally before the official opening date of on-campus housing for domestic and returning students. OIP will arrange for permission for early arrival for students living on campus. Students must notify us at least three weeks before arrival of their arrival date and time, by returning the Arrival Details form, so that we can make these arrangements.
