International Student Orientation
All students will participate in an International Student Orientation, which includes information on immigration, academics, computing, transportation, health services, setting up bank accounts and a shopping trip.
We want to make sure you start off right at St. Mike’s! International Student Orientation is designed to help you get acclimated to campus, provide you with important information about immigration, campus services, and student life, and give you an opportunity to meet other new international students.
Fall 2020 International Student Orientation is August 24-30
Save the Date! Your parents and family are invited to join us for brunch on Tuesday, August 25.
More details about the orientation program will be provided later this summer.
Topics included in orientation:
- academic expectations and advising
- technology at St. Mike’s
- public transportation, bank accounts, shopping
- health services and campus services
- residential and student life information
International undergraduate students and Academic English students will also join in the SMC New Student Orientation.
International Orientation for other terms and sessions may be shorter, but is still provided.
It’s time to get ready for your new adventure!
Plan Your Travel
When Should I Arrive?
Pay close attention to the arrival date in your admission materials and contact us if you have a question. If you arrive early, you will likely need to stay at a local hotel at your own expense and take a taxi to your destination.
Send an email to ArriveSMC@smcvt.edu to let us know your flight details. If you will be living on campus, we will pick you up at Burlington International Airport (BTV).
Upon arrival at Burlington International Airport (BTV), a Saint Michael’s Student Assistant will meet and drive you to your residence where you will be welcomed into university life by your Residential Director and fellow students.
Complete Your Forms
It’s important to complete and return the required forms at least one month before you arrive.
Billing and Payments
Payment for your first session or semester is due at least 10 days before your classes start. More information about billing for specific programs and ways to make international payments can be found here.
Almost all students at Saint Michael’s College live in a residence hall. Read more about living at St. Mike’s.
What to Bring?
Don’t bring too much!
If you are living on campus, see the FAQs above for information about room furnishing and linens.
During International Orientation, students have the opportunity to join a shopping trip to local stores to purchase needed items, like toiletries, bedding, fans, and other items you may not wish to carry with you. It’s also easy to order supplies online and have them shipped to you at SMC.
Remember that US beds may not have the same dimensions as beds in your home country, so you may wish to purchase bedding in the US.
You can find even more information about what to bring here.
