Before you go, don't forget these required steps:

  1. Complete your program-specific application
  2. Participate in Puget Sound's Pre-Departure Orientation
  3. Complete your Post-Acceptance application materials
  4. Read and respond to important information from International Programs and your program provider.

Take some time to prepare yourself mental and physically for your time abroad. Look over the independent preparation section for things you can do at home. Make arrangements with your family and friends for how you will communicate while you are away. Be sure to get plenty of sleep and water in the days leading up to your departure.
