Orientation Program

Information Sessions for Parents of Interested Students

Have you heard about St. John's University study abroad programs, and want an opportunity to learn more? If so, we welcome you to join us for upcoming sessions on our Queens and Staten Island campuses. During these informal presentations, we'll address the questions that families often have as they consider sending their students abroad, including:

  1. Costs. Did you know that our students “travel” with all their current financial aid? In addition, we award over $600,000 in additional grants to help make our programs more affordable. 
  2. Coursework. Our programs are custom-made for St. John’s students, and offer classes that fit nearly all students’ schedules—particularly if they plan ahead. 
  3. Why go? Study abroad can be a formative academic and personal experience, but equally important, it can provide a competitive advantage on the job market. Nationally, only about 10% of college graduates study abroad!

Pre-Departure Orientation Sessions for Parents of Summer/Fall Study Abroad Students
If your student is planning to study abroad this sumer or fall, we would love to welcome you to a pre-departure session! During this session, we will outline the details of your student's program and learn about all of the necessary preparations. Pizza and soft drinks will be served.
