Pre-Departure Sessions

Mandatory Pre-Departure Orientation Sessions are conducted by Education Abroad every semester. Please note, these sessions are NOT for students on faculty-led programs.

Exchange and Affiliate Orientation

Students on Exchange and Affiliate summer, semester, or year-long programs have a full day session in preparation for studying abroad. ALL students are required to attend pre-departure orientation and must attend regardless of orientations/workshops offered by other departments or colleges. 

Students are required to follow Education Abroad Regional CANVAS pages and attend any available virtual Pre-Departure Orientation sessions.

McCombs Students

Students participating on a BBA Exchange program must attend the Pre Departure Workshop led by McCombs (which are separate from the above Orientation sessions). Details about your required session will be included in your acceptance information from the BBA International Programs Office. For additional details, reference your Preparing To Go Checklist.

MBA students should consult with Debbie Carney for details.

Engineering Students

All International Engineering Program students must attend a pre-departure orientation with Helena Wilkins. Please contact her for details.
