Pre-Departure Information

Orientations & Communication with UC Davis Quarter Abroad

A Smartsite will be created for each program by the Quarter Abroad Staff and Faculty Program Leader. Here you will find the forms you will need for your program, academic information, the Quarter Abroad Manual, and your program specific guidebook. It is your responsibility to turn in the necessary forms by the due dates. We encourage you to read all of this information and contact us at if you have any questions.

Quarter Abroad will be conducting a mandatory pre-departure orientation for your program. You will be notified of the date/time via email and your Smartsite. In addition, there will be an on-line tutorial that all students must complete. It is required that all participants attend these meetings. Important program information will be presented at this time and you will also get a chance to meet your faculty program leader and the other students on your program.
