Pre-Departure Checklist


As you get set to embark on your amazing study abroad journey, there are a number of important things you want to complete before you go

Additional Things to Consider

  • Plan accordingly for your finances abroad. Notify your bank that you will be traveling so they are aware of any foreign transactions you may make on your credit cards while abroad. Also, ensure that you have emergency funds available in the event you need them.
  • Make sure you have ALL medications you may need while abroad from your doctor. It may or may not be possible to obtain the same prescription you need while abroad.
  • Make copies of all important documents, one copy for you and one to leave at home: Passport, visa, drivers license, insurance card, prescriptions, credit cards, and home stay contact information if necessary.
  • Pay all university fees if owed and remove all registration holds for registration.
  • Prepare for any safety concerns and have emergency contact information readily available with your family.
