Airport Pickup for New International Students

The  International Student and Study Abroad Services office offers an airport pick-up service to new international students when they arrive at Fargo's Hector International Airport (airport code FAR) in the Fall and Spring semester. It is best to arrive in Fargo by airplane, with most schedules allowing students to arrive between 10am and midnight. We look forward to welcoming you! Please fill out the request form if you would like to be picked up upon your arrival at Hector International Airport.

If you choose to arrive outside of these dates, you must make hotel arrangements before your arrival as residence hall accommodations do not open until Wednesday, August 19, so you may visit (scroll to "Taxi Services") to arrange transportation to your hotel.
