Airport Pickup Times

New international students must report to campus before the start of Bridges (required for academic students) and IEP Placement Testing (required for those studying English first). Missing these activities could seriously jeopardize your immigration and academic statuses. 

The Center for International Programs (CIP) provides free transportation from the Dayton International Airport to campus before the start of each term. Scroll down to find when this service is offered for your term of entry. 

Although this service is free, it must still be requested and approved by our office. Click here to apply. Submit your request at least 7 days before your flight arrives to ensure pick-up. If your request is approved, a driver will be waiting for you at the airport when you arrive to transport you to campus. 

If arriving outside of our service times, you will be responsible for arranging your own transportation. Click here for a list of transportation options at the airport.

For those living on campus, pay close attention to the date housing opens. If you are required to live on campus (or have requested to live on campus) and arrive prior to this date, you will not be able to access your room. Additionally, you will be responsible for arranging temporary accommodations and the associated costs.

Please plan your arrival carefully, ensuring that you have 1) transportation and 2) housing finalized well in advance of departing your country.
