IPO To Host Mandatory Orientation for 2020 Travelers

Friday, October 4, 2019

The International Programs Office (IPO) will host its Pre-Departure Orientation on Thursday, December 5 from 7:00-9:15 p.m. in the Campus Center.

The orientation—mandatory for all students planning to study abroad in Winter 2019/20, Spring 2020, and Calendar Year 2020—provides a combination of practical tips and important information to help students prepare for travel. The event features stories from education abroad alums and international students, country and region-specific information, question and answer sessions, and opportunities to connect with other students studying abroad. Critical health and safety material will also be covered.

If you are unable to attend due to class or work, you will be required to participate in an online makeup session. If you are no longer planning to study abroad, please be sure to log into your UMass Ed Abroad account and change your status.

If you have any questions, please contact the IPO Programming team or your Education Abroad Advisor.
