Pre-Departure Orientation

Preparedness is an important ingredient for successful travel.

Many programs require pre-departure orientations that provide significant information about resources, requirements, safety and security while traveling to a specific destination. Additional online modules addressing common concerns will continue to be added on pertinent topics for all travelers.

Pre-departure orientations are required for all undergraduates and are coordinated by the program sponsor. Contact your program sponsor for specific pre-departure training and orientations applicable to your planned travel.
