Travel Resources and Pre-departure Preparation

Once your trip is confirmed, you are required to discuss a pre-departure planning schedule with the global public health advisor. Depending on what type of trip you’re taking, the activities you’ll be engaging in, and your international travel experience, this session (or sessions) may take many different forms, but all students must complete a minimum travel orientation prior to departure.
