What comes next (visa)/what does this say?

My school just sent me a form (in French) titled Autorisation Habilitant Les Representations Suisses A Delivrer Un Visa (AE). It has some French text that I don't understand (image here: http://imgur.com/43SDtcJ). Is this telling me anything important? And what do I do now to get the actual visa?

Also, I'm planning to go to Switzerland as a tourist a month and a half before the visa period starts - if I have this visa in my passport for a later period, will I still be able to get in as a US tourist (no visa required)? Do I have to leave Switzerland and re-enter when the visa period starts?

Thanks so much.

Re: What comes next (visa)/what does this say?

If you haven't already, you need to apply for a Type D visa at the nearest Swiss embassy/consulate to where you live. If you've already applied then you need to send your passport or take it to the embassy/consulate so the visa can be stamped in your passport.

I personally would not travel to Switzerland as a tourist before you're ready to move over properly and enter with your visa. If you do you might cause confusion by having the visa in your passport.

Put the text through Google Translate. Unfortunately I can find no way to copy your image so can't do it myself.
