- New international students should arrive in Minnesota no later than August 19, 2021, approximately 10 days before the start of the school year. During this time, international students will acclimate to their host homes, adjust to the time change, attend a 3-day orientation and a get-acquainted outing, take placement tests for math and English, choose course schedules, prepare for classes, and attend back-to-school events.
- Returning international students should arrive in Minnesota no later than August 22, approximately a week before the start of the school year. Returning international students still need a few days to adjust to the time zone, move back into their host homes, prepare for school, and attend back-to-school events.
