Pre- and Post-Departure


Students studying abroad on either a long-term or short-term program are required to participate in a pre-departure orientation. For long-term programs the orientation is held in person at a date and time to be announced prior to your departure. For short-term programs the orientation is an online Canvas course. In the case of Summer School Abroad, a site specific orientation will also be held to give you details about your experience. 

Orientation will cover topics such as:

  • Travel Websites & Documents
  • Safety
  • Health
  • Travel Tips

Students studying abroad on a CSU International Program or an ISEP program are welcome to attend a long-term program orientation, but a mandatory state-wide orientation will be held in the Spring specific to the CSU programs.
