Information for Incoming International Students

Onboarding Portal: For students who apply for fall entry, the new student onboarding portal opens in March. For students entering in the spring semester, the checklist will become available in October. The portal contains additional information to prepare you for Thomas College, and we will email you when it’s available. This is where you’ll let us know about your on-campus housing needs.

Resource Guide: We encourage you to read our International Students’ Resource Guide as you prepare to transition to life at Thomas.

Visa Application: For more information on the I-20 Form for your visa application, please connect with the College’s Primary Designated School Official (PDSO), the Registrar, at registrar@thomas.edu or 207-859-1405.

Orientation: As part of your transition to life at Thomas, you’ll participate in Orientation. As part of the programming, you and fellow students will go on a tour, enjoy meals in the Dining Center, and meet with staff members and learn about resources, opportunities, and expectations in our community.
