Pre Departure Briefing

Pre Departure Briefing

You are about to begin what will likely be one of the most exciting challenges of your life. It is not too early to start thinking about the steps you need to take before you depart.

·         Pre-Departure Forms
After being accepted to a program you must log in to your 
Study Abroad Portal and complete all post-decision Signature Documents, Application Questionnaires and Material Submissions by the stated deadline. It is extremely important that you disclose any accommodations, health, counseling, and dietary needs and history well in advance of the program start date to Overseas Programs and to your program provider so that proper support and care can be arranged for your time. If you have physical or learning disabilities, confirm whether the host institution can offer accommodations.
