Prior to departing for your Spring 2022 semester, attend the mandatory Pre-Departure Orientation. We will offer 3 sessions on December 15, January 11, and January 13. All students MUST attend a full Orientation to start their semester with Verto Education. Students RSVP via the Student Portal Events Page.

During Hour 1, you’ll go over the student handbook, learn about academic expectations, receive tips on health and safety, and learn more about the team that will support your success throughout the semester.

During Hour 2, you will learn about arrival logistics, location details, cultural insights, and have an opportunity to ask questions to the Program staff that are on-location.
