Pre-Departure Orientation

UMD and Affiliate program participants are required to attend an in-person orientation. 

  • The first half will be spent discussing general study abroad matters (registration, health & safety issues, culture, etc.) 
  • The second half will be program-specific. You’ll meet peers going abroad, speak with alumni from your program (when available), and discuss logistics to make your experience a success.

Upcoming Orientation Details

TBD. Due to campus closures, information will be provided when available 

Online Orientation

All students studying abroad are required to complete a mandatory online health and safety orientation. Access this orientation through your study abroad checklist following acceptance to your program.
