Virtual Pre-departure Orientations for New International Students

PDO 2022 Fall

The International Center is excited to virtually meet new international students who will begin their studies in Fall 2022!

To support new students, we will be hosting two Pre-Departure Orientation (PDO) virtual events. Content will be the same at each PDO, and students should only register for one event.

The PDOs are scheduled for (all dates and times are in Eastern Daylight Time):

  • Tuesday, June 28, 9am-11am
  • Thursday, June 30, 9am-11am

These PDOs are designed to help new international students and their family gain valuable information about University of Michigan (U-M) services, life in the USA/Ann Arbor, campus resources, and important immigration information. Attendees can also submit their questions in advance when they register.

To join a virtual PDO meeting and obtain login information, new students will need to register in advance. Students should use their U-M Uniqname and password to register through Sessions. The presentation will be conducted in English via Zoom meeting.
