Pre-Departure Orientation

All students who study abroad are required to attend our Pre-Departure Orientation . We hold Pre-Departures towards the end of every Fall and Spring semester, and you will attend one based on which term you are going abroad.  Check out our Pre-Departure Handbook.

The Department of State website has some useful resources for students traveling abroad.
