Transfer orientation for international will occur online between August 5 - 13, 2019.  All international students will be required to complete an online module pertaining to immigration status prior to arriving at UC Davis.

Please review the UC Davis Orientation webpage for more details. 

When to Arrive

All students coming to the U.S. to study on an I-20 or DS-2019 can enter the United States up to 30 days before the program start date listed on these documents. We strongly recommend that students take advantage of this early arrival option to have enough time to recover from jet lag, become familiar with the campus and community, and finalize housing before beginning classes.
