International Student Orientation & Arrival Information

Fall 2020 Orientation Information

For all incoming day, evening, exchange and graduate international students

All international students who plan to begin classes at Drury University in August 2020 should plan to arrive on Drury's campus on Sunday, August 2 or Monday, August 3. As students are arranging travel, the final stop should be to the Springfield-Branson National Airport (airport code: SGF) on the days previously mentioned. Students who would like to be met at the airport and driven to the Drury campus at no charge should complete the airport pick-up request form. 

Students who are 21 years or older and who plan to live off campus are responsible for arranging their own temporary and permanent housing. This may include staying in a hotel until permanent arrangements are made. Also, transportation to and from Drury's campus is the personal and financial responsibility of each student. 

Important:  At the direction of Drury University’s COVID-19 Response Team, and in consideration of Greene County Public Health recommendations, students engaged in international travel within two weeks of arriving in the U.S. will be required to self-isolate/quarantine in their residence hall or off-campus for 14 days pursuant to their arrival in the U.S.  Those in the residence halls will have meals provided. 

Internet connectivity via WiFi will be available upon check-in, along with a temporary (optional) new SIM card for cellular devices.

International students will participate in the academic advising and registration process during International Student Orientation.
