Pre-Departure Orientation

N.U.in students have three orientations throughout their participation in the program, Pre-Departure Orientation, on-site orientation once students have arrived in their host countries (see the “On-Site Orientation” section for your specific program), and New Student Orientation on Northeastern’s campus in January (see Office of Student Orientation and Parent/Family Programs website for more information).

During Pre-Departure Orientation (PDO), you will spend two days on Northeastern’s Boston campus participating in a program designed to introduce you to N.U.in policies and procedures, increase your familiarity with your N.U.in location, and meet your fellow N.U.in students and N.U.in staff.  Students will stay overnight in an on-campus residence hall. Towels, bedding, and meals are all provided for N.U.in students.

Registration

Registration will be found in the Application Status Check once it is available in May. Registration is required, and each PDO session will fill up on a first-come, first-served basis. Please check back for the deadline by which students must register for a PDO session.

Fall 2019 Pre-Departure Orientation is scheduled for June 21-22, June 24-25 & June 26-27. Students will be given the opportunity to register for one set of these dates later this spring in their Application Status Check,
