China Pre-Departure Orientation

Pre-Departure OrientationThe Ohio State University offers a Pre-Departure Orientation for new Chinese students who have been accepted and have paid their acceptance fee. The Pre-Departure Orientation offers an opportunity for future students, and their families, to learn more about college life, meet other Ohio State students and university staff and learn important information before traveling to the United States.

The Pre-Departure Orientation is a two-day program offered in Shanghai and Beijing. Students can choose one of the four sessions available, and each student can register themselves and two guests. Attending the orientation with family is a great way to build a foundation for success at Ohio State.
