Passport to Emory

Passport to Emory 2024

Passport to Emory is a pre-departure onboarding program for F-1/J-1 international students who will begin their undergraduate, graduate, or professional program at Emory University in Fall 2024. 

This free, in-person program will offer helpful information related to pre-departure, immigration, campus resources, cultural awareness, and so much more. Passport to Emory will help smooth your transition and prepare you for a successful Emory student experience.   

The program includes: 

  • a presentation for both incoming students and their invited guest 
  • an opportunity to meet representatives from Emory University 
  • a networking break during which students and family members can connect with one another
