International Students

Important information for international students

Generally, the information detailed in the New Students section of this website applies in the same way to new international students as it does to new domestic students. However, new international students must be aware of additional steps and requirements that are important to the New Student Orientation (NSO) experience and to a successful start at Indiana University Bloomington (IUB).

Reporting to IUB (new international student arrival policy)

As an undergraduate international student new to IUB, you must participate in NSO prior to the beginning of the term. Required reporting dates are noted on your I-20 or DS2019 and you must make every effort to arrive on or before that date. If you do not report to IUB within three business days prior to the start of classes (and complete the orientation process as scheduled) you will not be allowed to register for that term.
