Pre-Arrival Orientation

You will receive the Zoom link for your applicable Pre-Arrival Orientation (previously known as the Health and Safety Meeting) preceding your off-campus term. 

These meetings communicate important information, as well as function as a community-building event for each off-campus cohort. 

Attendance is mandatory therefore it may require you to rearrange non-academic, social commitments in order to attend. Keep in mind that failure to attend all orientation meetings and fulfill the prerequisites of the program could result in your dismissal from the program.

If you are not able to make the orientation preceding your off-campus term, you should plan to attend an earlier orientation.  Participants have been accepted with the understanding that they will be responsible for materials covered in the meeting and all other orientation meetings.
