I am an American moving to Argentina. What documents do I need?

I will be arriving in Buenos Aires in just over three weeks. I will be looking for work teaching ESL, I will be taking classes in SSL at UBA, and I will be getting an apartment (probably in San Telmo). I will be staying for at least a year - I'd like to stay longer if possible, and I'll make that decision when the time comes.
Until then... what documents should I bring with me? I have no criminal record. Should I bring a document stating I have no criminal record? How do I get that? What about a birth certificate? Certificates of immunization?
My understanding (based on emails with UBA) is that I can't get a student visa ahead of time - I have to arrive, enroll, and then apply for a visa. Is this true?
Hope me Metafilter. My google-fu is failing me.
