All sessions are held via Zoom. Students should make every effort to attend sessions at the time they are offered, but each will be recorded and made available for viewing online if you can't attend the synchronous meetings.


The Traveling Abroad sessions go over important information about international travel, including passports & visas, safety & security while abroad, accessing your money from abroad, culture shock, packing, and many other relevant topics. Register for the session that works best for your schedule. 


The IC Details sessions go over all of the logistical information you'll need to understand issues such as credit and grade transfer, registering for classes while abroad, billing and payment for study abroad programs, on-campus housing when you return, and accessing support from Student Accessibility Services while abroad.
