Pre-Departure Orientation/Course

Central hosts pre-departure meetings and an online course for all students studying abroad prior to the start of the time abroad. Students and their families are welcome to attend to the first meeting which is typically held on a Saturday for director-led programs. Students are given the schedule for these events after acceptance. Please see course catalog for course details.

Health & Safety

Health information including site-specific recommendations for immunizations and general health guidelines are provided in the student acceptance packet and will be available prior to departure. Details can be found in the student guides for each program and the parent policies and procedures.

Central College routinely monitors health and safety at each program site.
