    Transcript

    Students can enter the U.S. 30 days before the start date that's listed on their form i-20. So, students are welcome to come to the U.S. early if they want to travel or get themselves situated. We recommend at Western New England to come as close to the orientation date as possible so that you don't have to worry about finding housing on your own. So orientation is typically about a week before classes start to come as close to that date as possible. So you still have the weekend to relax and get yourself settled in.
