All international students must attend Glo-Bull Beginnings Week beginning on Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017.

It is not easy to move from your home country to start college in the U.S., which is why we require all international students to move to Tampa no later than January 3rd. In working with International Services, your immigration paperwork has been set to indicate this as your arrival date. We recognize that delays, cancelations, and other travel concerns sometimes happen so be sure to plan ahead. This includes getting a Visa appointment in your home country as early as possible, as well!

Registration Deadline for Fall 2016 students is Friday, July 8, 2016.

For a more detailed look at each day, please see the Schedule Overview.
