• Arrival Planning

    Pre-Departure Checklist:

    Please use this document as a guide for your pre-departure preparations.

    Arrival & Move-In Day

    If you are living on-campus, move-in days are August 15, 2017 for Fall and January 8, 2018 for Spring. We provide enough time for you to get acclimated and provide some time to adjust from jet lag.

    STAMPEDE (New Student Orientation) is currently only available in the Fall, but if you're an international student coming in the Spring, we will always have a special event to welcome you to HSU.

    Welcome Basket

    As a welcome gesture, if you will be living on-campus, HSU will provide a gift basket to assist you for your first few days here. You can find the complete list here.

    Arrival/Airport Pickup Form

    We provide airport pickup for our international students flying in to Abilene Regional Airport from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm CST, 7 days a week!

    Whether you are driving in to Hardin-Simmons or flying in to Abilene Regional Airport, we need to know when to have your room ready or when to pick you up at the airport.

    Please fill out the Arrival Form below. Attach your flight tickets or type in your flight numbers, dates, and airlines so we can keep track of any issues that might arise (delays, cancellations).
