All students should complete this form to indicate travel plans at least one week prior to their expected arrival.
Attendance at all orientation programs is required for all new students. It is important that you plan your travels to arrive to Dartmouth on the designated check-in day to meet with our staff and process your enrollment prior to the orientation program.
You have the option of arranging your own personal transportation to reach UMass Dartmouth or you can take our scheduled airport service, which is approximately $160 USD per person*. If you request an airport pickup, requests must be submitted with your full flight details at least one week in advance of your flight.
Students requesting an airport pickup should plan to arrive at Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) or Providence T.F. Green airport (PVD) on January 17th 2018.
If you are not requesting an airport pickup service, we ask that you still submit this arrival confirmation form to inform us of your travel plans, and please plan to check in at the GSP office on campus between 9:00am and 6:00pm on the designated check-in day
Note: Students living on-campus, who will arrive to Dartmouth, MA prior to the designated check-in day, or after 6:00pm on the check in day, will be required to stay at a local hotel until you can check in to the residence halls the following day. Please refer to the online Pre-Departure Guide for more information and recommendations for local hotels.
*Please be advised that this is estimated cost and the final charges will depend on the total number of airport pickups requested. When possible, we will try to arrange group pick-ups to reduce the cost.
