Pre-Departure Orientation

​Pre-Departure Orientation

As part of the preparation to study abroad, students are required to attend the Pre-Departure Orientation. The Pre-Departure Orientation provides students with opportunities to think, discuss, and reflect on goals, aspirations, and considerations for their upcoming education abroad experience. We will also review important information related to health, safety, and security abroad. Students will also have the opportunity to attend a country or region-specific session where they can hear from prior program participants and/or international students. Please make note of the dates of upcoming Pre-Departure Orientations:
