Arrival and Orientation

When Do Exchange/Visiting Students Arrive On Campus?

Please see the current FACT SHEET for the exact dates for the official arrival and for the last day for benefits so that you can arrange your flight properly. That day will be the first day that international students will be able to move into the dorms with no additional cost.  Students can move in earlier, however, there is an extra cost involved because they generally do not have workers in the dorms any earlier.  If you would like to arrive earlier and move into the dorm, you must notify the housing Coordinator.

The nearest airport is the Nashville International Airport (BNA) and it is over one hour away driving from Cookeville.  There is a shuttle service that you can arrange to pick you up when you arrive at the airport no matter when your flight arrives and take you to your assigned housing directly.  This is the safest and most recommended form of transportation for arrival:

The International Orientation session is a required component to finalize your enrollment. This program allows new international students a wonderful opportunity to become familiar with Tennessee Tech's campus, faculty, staff and current students.

Please see more information about your ARRIVAL. You should plan to take care of various requirements once you arrive in Cookeville.
