Pre-departure Orientation

All students who submitted a Study Abroad Proposal form will be enrolled in a non-credit class (SAB 090) for the Pre-departure Orientation. This class starts with on-line presentations in Blackboard (a web-based course software package). The presentations will include web-based reading assignments and quizzes on each weekly topic. You may repeat the quizzes as many times as necessary to provide the correct answer for each question. All quizzes must be completed by the last day of classes. 

You are responsible for the following quizzes:

Pre-departure Orientation also includes a mandatory pre-departure meeting for all students preparing to study abroad next semester. The meeting will address health, safety, and cross-cultural matters in an interactive format. The class meeting will be offered three times. You may attend any of these meetings, but you must attend one.
