All international students will participate in an on-line, pre-arrival orientation, International Arrival and Welcome beginning on August 13, and the August SOAR session and Welcome Week. Lunch will be provided at SOAR, and Welcome Week meals will begin with the evening meal on Saturday, August 17.

You will receive an email with instructions to connect with an advisor who will instruct you on how to take any placement tests you may need to complete. These tests are designed to assess your previous course work and determine the appropriate beginning level of instruction for you here at UE. August

Housing

After we have received confirmation that you have sent your admission deposit, you will receive email instructions describing how to register for housing and a meal plan. Housing is assigned on a first come, first served basis. Students who have registered for housing and have met their financial obligation to the University will be able to move in beginning August 13. Students moving in earlier must have permission in advance from Residence Life.

Vaccination and Physical Exam

United States public health laws safeguarding group living are very strict. Without submission of proper medical/health records, admittance to the university is prohibited. The cost of a medical examination and vaccinations are expensive in the United States and must be paid by the student. Having these requirements completed by your family physician (doctor) at home will help avoid added complications and costs.

You must have the following requirements met: two doses of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccinations (MMR), one dose of Meningococcal Quad (MenACWY) at or above the age of 16, and one dose of tetanus (Tdap/TD) vaccine within the past 10 years. TB testing must be performed within 6 months of the start of the semester. The QuantiFERON (TB blood testing) will be accepted if performed in your home country. The TB skin testing must be performed within the United States. The University of Evansville also requires a physical examination performed within 12 months from the start of the semester. You will have the opportunity to receive all requirements not met prior to arrival at the Student Health Center during orientation. Please visit the UE Health Center website for more outlined requirement details and how to submit the required documentation to your MedProctor student account.

Paying the Bill

Your acceptance packet includes an estimated invoice for your first session. Before you can move into your residence hall and register for classes, you must pay your expenses, due on or before July 15; therefore, we recommend that you wire your funds directly to the University of Evansville before you arrive. Wire transfer instructions are included on the estimated invoice. Please indicate your name and UE identification number, which you will find on the invoice.

NOTE: Embassy-sponsored students must have a valid financial guarantee letter in order to register for classes.
