Pre-Departure Orientation

UCSB EAP students are required to complete two orientations:

1. UCSB EAP Online Orientation 
    Follow the instructions that you received from UCSB EAP via email.

2. In-person country-specific orientation (see below)

Note: UCSB EAP students will also have to complete a finance workshop.

The mandatory country-specific orientation will allow you to meet the other students in your program and speak with returnees. The country-specific orientation will cover details of your program and will ensure that your questions are answered. Follow the instructions that you received from your UCSB EAP Advisor via email. The date, time, and location of your country-specific orientation are listed below.
