We suggest that students fly into the Plattsburgh International Airport (http://www.flyplattsburgh.com/)
 or the Burlington International Airport

We do not pick up students from New York City, Boston, or Montreal. We provide transportation from the bus terminal and train terminal in Plattsburgh, NY and transportation from Burlington International Airport in Burlington, VT or Plattsburgh International Airport.

We also require that you complete the international arrival form at this location: http://www.clinton.edu/StudentServices/internationalarrivalform.fml

Step 6: Send Final Transcripts / Certificates


Original or certified copies of academic transcripts, grade reports, mark sheets, diplomas/certificates, national standardized examination results, or other academic course work are required.
