When coming to the U.S. to begin a program at Fuller for the first time, you may be asked to present the following documents at the Port of Entry:
- Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20/DS-2019)
- Valid student visa and applicable dependent visa(s) (Canadian citizens exempt)
- Valid passport for each member of your family traveling with you
- Confidential Declaration of Financial Support-be prepared to show evidence of your financial ability to support yourself while you are in the U.S.
Upon being admitted to the U.S., Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will create an electronic I-94 admission record that will be available immediately online at www.cbp.gov/I94. We recommend that students print out a copy of the I-94, which will be necessary in the case of employment and to apply for benefits such as a Social Security Number (SSN) or driver's license.
Arrange housing ahead of time. If you do not have housing available before coming to the U.S., it is advisable to reserve a hotel or a room at the Fuller Guest Center for temporary accommodations.
Arrange transportation from the airport to Fuller. The Office of Student Affairs offers airport shuttle service from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Fuller's campus in Pasadena.
*You must be signed-in with your Fuller email account to submit the shuttle request form*
