All OSU students participating in an OSU GO education abroad program must complete the OSU GO Online Pre-departure Orientation found within the OSU GO Online Application. 

The learning modules include important information about travel documents, travel arrangements, academics policies and registration, financial aid and billing, and health and safety.

In addition to the Online Orientation, OSU GO hosts an in-person Pre-departure Orientation each fall and spring.   This large group session includes opportunities to meet other out-bound students as well as receive tips and advice from recent returnees.

Please note: In most instances, the Pre-Departure Orientation (both online and in-person) is required before students will be allowed to register for the program.

The next In-Person Pre-Departure Orientation (for Summer and Fall Term 2016 students) is:

  • Date: TBD
  • Time: TBD
  • Location: TBD

Please contact your education abroad advisor, if you have any questions.
