Make sure that your family and friends have contact information for UMass International Programs Office (IPO) and for your program. Complete your emergency wallet card and keep it with you at all times. Know how to place calls to program support staff and home:
- When calling the United States from out of the country, the exit code (or international access code) is: 001
- When calling another country from the United States, the exit code is: 011
- To call other countries, you will need to know both the exit code and the country codes. You can use the How to Call Abroad website to determine how to make phone calls to and from all countries.
