You should not enter the U.S. until you have your F-1 Student Visa. When you board the plane for the U.S., you must have the following documents:
When you enter customs in the U.S, you may be fingerprinted and photographed, which is part of a new security-screening program called US-VISIT. Established in 2004, this program prevents terrorism in the U.S. For more information regarding this program, please visit the US-VISIT website.
Note: We cannot accept students on B Visas for more than 1 session full time, and a second session part time
Students entering Houston usually fly into the Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport. The University no longer arranges airport pick-up. However, a Houston company called Student Transportation Service offers airport pick-up. If you desire this service, you must schedule transportation services prior to arrival. To do so, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Students may also take a taxicab, an airport shuttle bus or a city bus.
The University of Houston-Downtown is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Students who arrive at the airport on the weekend or later than 3:00 p.m. on business days, should go directly to their housing location.
When you arrive at the University, be prepared to register for your courses. You will need your passport, I-20 and I-94 card. You will pay for your classes at registration, so please bring a credit card (Visa, MasterCard or Discover), U.S. check, money order or cash.
Note: We do not recommend traveling around town with lots of cash.
If have not established housing, please visit our Housing webpage. It is better to secure your housing before you arrive.
