STEP 3:     PREPARE TO ARRIVE at CLINTON

Sign up for Housing and Pay Your Housing Deposit

Make Travel and Arrival Arrangements
You should arrive on campus one week before the start of classes to participate in our mandatory International Orientation program. Participation costs $250 and allows you time to take care of personal business (banking, shopping), meet with advisors, and learn about the North Country of New York. The fee also covers costs associated with your personal pick up from the airport. We suggest students fly into the Plattsburgh International Airport or the Burlington International Airport. Please note that we do not pick up students from New York City, Boston, or Montreal. We also provide transportation from the bus and train terminals in Plattsburgh, NY. In order to meet your travel needs, we require that you complete the following form: International Arrival Form.


Complete and Submit Health Form and Immunization Records
All students must complete and submit the following form: Health Form and Immunization Records. Please submit the completed form to the address noted on the form.


Purchase Health Insurance
International students must purchase a health insurance plan through HTH Worldwide. You can find out more about this plan here: HTH Worldwide. Purchase a health insurance plan through HTH Worldwide (www.hthstudents.com) at a cost of roughly $540 for 9 months, and provide documentation of this prior to arrival on campus.


Send Final Transcripts / Certificates
Original or certified copies of academic transcripts, grade reports, mark sheets, diplomas/certificates, national standardized examination results, or other academic course work are required. Photocopied or scanned copies are NOT acceptable as official
documents. Final documents are required to reach us 45 days before the beginning of classes. If we do not receive the document/s the student I-20 will be terminated.
