Orientation will be conducted in two parts.

The first is an online health and safety orientation, which is mandatory for all students. You will receive more information about the online health and safety orientation on your confirmation checklist. Failure to complete the online orientation will impact your ability to go abroad.

The second part is the in-person, program-specific orientation. See below for tentative dates and times for your in-person session. You will be notified of the official date and time via email. Participants will receive applicable orientation materials via email approximately one week prior to the in-person session.
