Orientation 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 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 should check their Pitzer College study abroad portal to stay current.
