The International Center is excited to virtually meet new international students who will begin their studies in Fall 2021!

This Pre-Departure Orientation (PDO) is 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 the 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.
