International Student Check In Day for the fall 2015 semester is Monday, August 17, 2015. Students should plan to arrive at Washington DC’s Dulles Airport between 10:00am and 7:00pm on that date in order to receive free transportation from the airport to UMW’s campus.  Students who are already in the United States should arrive to campus between 9:00am and 5:00 pm of Check In Day.  If you require shuttle service from the airport, e-mail with your flight information.  Please note that student housing is not available prior to the check in date.  Students arriving on alternate dates will be responsible for their own transportation and lodging until check in day.
