Pre-Departure Handbooks

Congratulations! You have been approved for Study Abroad. Now that you have been accepted for study abroad, a new phase begins – preparing to go. There will be many things to organize and forms to complete but the effort will be well worth it to find yourself studying abroad next semester. To help you keep track of tasks you need to complete in the months and weeks leading up to your departure, we have created pre-departure handbooks that are updated each semester. All Pitzer students and guest students on Pitzer programs receive these handbooks at orientation. Parents, faculty and study abroad advisers are welcome to view handbooks for the most recent semester on-line or download them for reference.

Students must observe the deadlines for the Pitzer acceptance paperwork or risk paying late fees or becoming ineligible for certain programs. Students may also download copies of the Pitzer acceptance paperwork to be completed if any of the forms have been misplaced.

Pitzer Programs Handbooks

These handbooks provide specific information for each Pitzer program with necessary details for your planning such as: program dates, immunizations, visa information, credit and fees, etc.
