Once you have been accepted into the University Pathways program, we will mail  you the materials needed from Greenville University for your visa interview. Please communicate with your admission Counselor on your visa application status. Once you have passed your Visa interview, email us at [email protected] about arrival dates, flight details, etc. Please do this BEFORE booking a flight.

Greenville University will provide a target arrival date. You should make every effort to arrive at Lambert International Airport in St. Louis, Missouri on that date.  Be sure to communicate your flight information so that transportation arrangements can be made. At the airport, a staff member will meet you and begin orientation. Orientation consists of taking time to adjust to jet lag, setting up your bank account, obtaining a phone, learning to find your way on campus and in the city of Greenville, learning important information about the local culture and U.S. laws, meeting the professors and administration, bonding with your classmates, and participating in many fun and entertaining activities.
