Orientation is the beginning of your journey to Study Abroad
Congratulations on your decision to study abroad during your time at UNC Asheville. To help prepare you for this educational and cultural experience, UNC Asheville requires that all study abroad students participate in the pre-departure orientation. Please read the Pre-departure Study Abroad Student Handbook before attending your orientation.
If you are unable to attend the pre-departure orientation for any reason, you will be charged a make-up orientation fee of $75.00. This charge will be added to your student account. Please contact study abroad and let us know ahead of time so we can arrange for a make-up orientation.
