Arrival Information Form

The HSU Center for International Programs will provide a courtesy van/bus and driver (during the dates specified for each term) for pickups and transportation from the airport or Arcata Transit Center (bus terminal) to lodging (on and off campus). If you are living on-campus, we will also assist you in checking into the dorms. If you will arrive on any other date, you must make your own transportation arrangements. 

It is very important that you complete this form, so that the Center for International Programs office can schedule an airport/bus pick-up for you. This form must be submitted at least two weeks before your arrival date in order to guarantee pick-up. We advise you arrive at least one day before the first day of orientation in order to attend the mandatory orientation on time.

If you have any questions, please email us at

See your admissions letter for this information.
Please provide email, WhatsApp username, or cell phone number you will use while in transit. We will use this information to contact you in case flights are delayed or cancelled.

New international students who wish to be picked up must arrive between the dates specified for each term.

  • AIRLINE: If you would like airport pick-up, you must arrive at Arcata Airport - code ACV
  • BUS: If you would like pick-up from the bus terminal, you must arrive at the Arcata Transit Center.
