Welcome to the Javelina Family!
We are delighted that you are joining the Javelina Nation! TAMUK is committed to your success as an active member of the international Javelina family. Therefore, you are strongly encouraged to arrive early--at least ten days or two weeks before classes start. This will give you time to adjust from travel, become familiar with your new surroundings, and provide adequate time to make arrangements for banking and housing. Early arrival is also crucial for your timely participation in International Student Orientation.
You are strongly advised to explore and read the information accessible by clicking the blue buttons (on the right). These are quick link resources that include a flowchart that contains vital information that will assist you in understanding the process once you arrive.
International Student Orientation is where the Javelina tradition really starts! It is a vital step toward successful transition into your new “home away from home”! Orientation provides important information regarding your stay as a student, campus resources, and services in the community. A few of the topics discussed will be academic expectations, immigration regulations, programs, safety, and support services at TAMUK. There are two mandatory sessions: the pre-arrival orientation process (before you arrive) and the Face-to-Face orientation process (September 18). You must register for this as explained below. All new international students must complete the orientation process before beginning their first session or semester;
Undergraduate International Students will need to attend Hoggie Days orientation as well as the international student orientation held on Thursday September 18, 2015. To register, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org for further instructions.
Graduate International Students are required to participate in the two-part orientation.
