Locate your passport
You must bring your passport to campus at the beginning of spring semester so that we can submit the visa applications promptly.
Avoid any chance of missing our deadline and/or possibly having to pay for FedEx by locating your passport and taking any steps to make sure it comes back to campus with you at the end of winter break.
Set up a reminder on your phone if necessary.
Check Your Grades
Once all grades are in, check to make sure that your fall grades have met the Flagship Academic Standard.
We will write you over the break to let you know if there is any change to your status, but it is a good idea for you to check yourself as well.
Get Feedback On Your Proficiency
Students are expected to reach Intermediate Mid (IM) in speaking, listening, and reading, by the end of spring semester.
If your instructors believe you are behind the curve in your language gains, you will want to dedicate more of your winter break to catching up.
See “Language Maintenance” in Winter Break section below.
Check External Scholarship Deadlines
