Emory College Study Abroad organizes a pre-departure session on campus for all students. The date and location will be provided in your pre-departure materials. You are REQUIRED to attend the orientation and any program-specific orientations that may also be organized. Failure to attend will jeopardize your ability to participate on your study abroad program. During orientation, the Emory College Study Abroad advisors will cover critical information such as academic credit issues, emergency contact information, health and safety, and cultural adjustment issues while abroad.
