Airport Transfer Service

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, INTO Mason is re-evaluating the airport transfer process to maintain everyone's safety and well-being. Check back regularly for updates and changes to our normal procedure.

We offer pick-up and transfer service at Dulles International Airport (IAD) and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) during the weekend before orientation.

If you want to schedule a pickup, submit your travel details online at least 72 hours before your arrival time. You must provide:

  • Application ID
  • Personal contact details
  • Flight number
  • Arrival date and time
  • Where you will be traveling to: campus, hotel, etc.

We'll send a detailed confirmation email, then meet you at the airport and take you to your accommodation.

If you're an F-1 student, you're allowed to enter the United States up to 30 days (but no sooner) before the start date on your I-20 Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status. If you arrive after the I-20 start date, you may be denied entry. 

The airport transfer service is offered on the following days, depending on your program start date:

  • Fall Semester (August): Saturday and Sunday before orientation 
  • Spring Semester (January): Saturday, Sunday and Monday before orientation 
  • Summer Semester (May): Monday and Tuesday before orientation  

If you arrive before you're able to move in to on-campus housing, you have the option of staying in an area hotel.
