A: If you are a student traveling from outside of New England and New York, you have the option to arrive one day prior to your arrival day - that days varies if you are a Rook or civilian, or doing Band/Drill FTX or have received a ROTC scholarship.
With airline tickets being expensive, we understand that it may be difficult for families to travel with new students to campus. If a student arrives alone, we will coordinate pick-up from the airport, as long as you arrive between 9a.m. and 5p.m. on the designated day. If you plan on flying in on the designated early arrival day, you need to fill out this form so we can coordinate pick-up. The form indicates what day you can arrive early on based on your lifestyle:
Band/Drill FTX: Thursday, Aug. 11th
ROTC Scholarship Recipients ONLY: Thursday, Aug. 18th
Rooks: Saturday, Aug. 20th
Civilians: Tuesday, Aug. 23rd
If you're traveling a considerable distance, we encourage families to send their son/daughter alone for arrival day, and save their trip to campus for parent/family weekend. Please contact the admissions office with any questions regarding this.
