China Pre-Departure Orientation

Transition Support (Student-focused)

Chinese international students make up 50 percent of new international undergraduate students and the China Pre-Departure Orientation was created to help these students have a successful transition to the University of Minnesota. The goals of this program include helping students understand next steps needed in their transition, building a awareness and knowledge about the cultural differences in the U.S. higher education system, and assisting students in developing a sense of belonging with the University of Minnesota.
