Dear exchange students:

 The Inter American University of Puerto Rico in San Germán will begin Spring 2012 classes on Monday, January 23, 2012.

 On Thursday, January 19, 2012, we will have an identified vehicle that can pick you up at the Mayagüez airport. This airport is located on the southwest side of the island. The San Juan International airport is the airport in which you will arrive. You have to take another flight to Mayagüez, your final destination. Please choose from one of the flights below and let me know ( fill out the Arrival Note ) what time you will be arriving so that I can make the proper transportation arrangements. If you decide to arrive at a different day or place, you will be responsible to make the proper travel arrangements to the campus.
Those students traveling on summer need to make similar arrangements but need to check with me before making the final arrangements as there is no established arrival date. You should take in consideration, however, arriving 2 business days before classes start in the summer so that all appropriate arrangements can be made.

 From San Juan to Mayagüez:
