Education Abroad

Pre-Departure Orientation

All students studying abroad are required to complete a pre-departure orientation Canvas class and attend Pre-Departure Orientation. The orientation will provide you with pre-departure information, including insurance requirements, student visa procedures, and other important preparation materials. You will also learn cultural information and connect with students who are from, have studied in, or plan to study in the same location.  The orientation is split into two parts: an online portion and an in-person portion.  The online portion will be available in the K-State online application under Assessments.  

If you are unable to attend the appropriate orientation session, you must contact your Education Abroad Advisor BEFORE the orientation date to make other arrangements. Dates and times for the upcoming pre-departure orientations can be found here
