Orientation Dates & Locations

Orientation will be conducted in 2 parts: an online orientation, which is mandatory for all students, and an in-person, program-specific session. You will receive more information about the online orientation via email. Failure to complete the online orientation will impact your ability to go abroad.

See below for tentative dates and times for your in-person session. You will be notified of the official date and time via email.  We do not provide makeup orientations, and advise that you plan ahead and adjust your schedule in order to attend.  The in-person orientation often covers information that is not in your written materials, such as past participant advice, and provides you with the opportunity to meet other program participants.
