When you arrive at NEO
You may enter the U.S. up to 30 days before the beginning of school. However, the NEO Dorms will not open until the weekend before school starts. Follow these steps when you arrive on campus:
- SEVIS check-in: You must visit the International Programs Office (IPO) within the first week on campus. You will need your passport, I-20 and dorm room assignment. Students who fail to register will be auto-terminated, dropped from classes and required to return to their country of origin.
- Complete Computerized Placement Tests (CPT Testing) to determine your initial placement in various courses. All first-time college students are required to take the ACCUPLACER test before registering for classes their first semester. This assessment is given to help determine which math, English and reading classes you should register for. It has no influence on your admissions or grades. If your scores are below necessary standards, you will be placed in noncredit, remedial classes. This may add coursework to your schedule and require additional semesters to complete your degree.
- Meet your advisor: You will be assigned an advisor in your major field of study. If you haven’t already enrolled in your classes, your advisor will help you register.
- Provide Tuberculosis (TB) Tests and Immunization Records: NEO requires tuberculosis screening for all international students within 10 days of arrival on campus. You will need to be tested by the NEO school nurse. Those with a positive TB result must undergo further screening at the Ottawa County Health Clinic. Contact the school nurse at +1-918-533-4325 to be screened.
In accordance with federal law, the NEO International Student Office will not communicate about a student’s application, admission or enrollment at NEO A&M College with anyone other than the student applying. Students should use their own personal email addresses when contacting the school. Documents submitted by international recruiters will not be accepted.
