Pre-Departure Orientation Information

Notebook with To-Do List

Sessions include:

  • UNT Expectations about behavior, the UNT Honor Code and study abroad
  • Emergency health and safety situations: What to do? Where to go? Whom to contact?
  • Student and parent expectations
  • UNT's health and accident insurance
  • Personal health and security
  • Culture shock and cultural adaptability
  • Money matters and financial aid
  • What to pack

Please note that failure to attend a session could result in a student offer of admission being rescinded.
