Once you have been admitted to Pittsburg State University and you have received your I-20 or DS2019, here are your next steps:
If students do not fly to the Joplin Missouri Airport, they will need to make their own travel arrangements to get to Pittsburg, Kansas at their own expense.
Travel costs for transportation from airports, overnight lodging, and meals must be prepared for.
If students decide not to live in a residence hall, they may look for rental apartments located around the university. The apartments and houses available vary in location, facilities, and rent fees. Contact the International Office upon your arrival to PSU for a list of possible apartments for rent and those looking for roommates.
All international students attending PSU for the first time are required to participate in the Orientation programs. During Orientation international students are informed about many areas of interest: academic and social matters, registration, enrollment, immigration issues, shopping, banking, housing, campus life and other matters particularly useful for international students.
During the Orientation program, students will have a special welcome luncheon with PSU dignitaries, share evening meals hosted by Pittsburg community groups, and have an opportunity to have an American host family.
After the Orientation has been successfully completed, the students will then be permitted to meet with his/her academic advisor and enroll in classes.
Students will receive an Orientation schedule upon arriving to PSU.
