Arrival and move-in for international students, spring 2022

Move-in arrivals and procedures will be different based on your vaccination status. Be sure to complete the travel plans form by Jan. 5, 2022, to help us make arrangements for your arrival.

Foreign national air travelers to the U.S. are required to be fully vaccinated and to provide proof of vaccination status prior to boarding an airplane, with only limited exceptions.

See the U.S. Department of State for the latest information on requirements for providing proof of vaccination and definition of fully vaccinated. The Centers for Disease Control also offers an online questionnaire that can help you determine if you are eligible to fly to the U.S.

Arrival on campus

• If you are not fully vaccinated, you must quarantine for seven days upon arrival. All quarantine arrivals on Jan. 19-20 will quarantine until campus move-in day a week later. You may quarantine with family or relatives or on the Augustana College campus. Information about quarantine locations will be shared as soon as it is available.

See the Centers for Disease Control for the latest information on requirements to be fully vaccinated.

• If you are fully vaccinated, your required arrival dates are Jan. 27-28. Move-in begins Jan. 27.

Augustana staff and our student Global Ambassadors will be available to pick you up when you arrive. They will direct you  to Swanson Residence Hall (or the correct quarantine location if required). Remember to get your orientation folder and welcome bag! You will pick up your bed linens and drop off luggage in your assigned residence hall room.

Arrivals by air: Global Ambassadors will meet you by baggage claim at the Augie A (airport map) and then shuttle to campus for check-in.

Arrivals by car: Go directly to Swanson Commons residence hall at 1010 38th St., Rock Island, Ill., from 10 a. m.-3 p.m. Global Ambassadors will meet you there for check-in.
