All students going abroad need to complete all orientations below.

Online General Orientation — You will watch a series of short videos that cover essential topics for education abroad students such as cross-cultural awareness, adapting to living abroad, and health and safety. These videos are not program-specific but discuss important information regardless of your destination. Once you are done watching the videos, you will complete a short quiz. You can access these videos and the quiz in your MyCUAbroad account.

Program-Specific Orientation (in-person) — This is your chance to talk to alumni from your program, to meet other students who will be participating on your program, and to ask questions about academics, registration, finances, health insurance, housing, visas, travel, packing tips and more. Family members are welcome to attend. *If you are attending a Global Seminar you may have more than one required Program-Specific Orientation — see dates below.
