A pre-departure orientation is required for students studying abroad. Orientation helps you prepare for and stay safe during travel, while providing strategies for getting the most out of your experience.

CUNY groups traveling abroad under non-study auspices are urged to coordinate with their campus study abroad offices about upcoming orientation dates.  Most campuses offer pre-departure orientations in advance of winter-intersession and summer travel.  If no orientation is available in a time frame that works for your group, please contact the Office of International Education for help identifying possible alternatives at other campuses.
