Before you start your program, you must complete a CIEE Orientation. In this orientation you will learn about program rules and regulations, and get advice on how to have a successful program. The CIEE Orientation is online. You can complete the orientation any time after you receive your DS-2019 form, but you must complete it before you travel to the U.S.

You will receive a reminder and instructions from CIEE approximately 30 days before your program start date. Make sure you have provided CIEE with your correct email address, and check with your CIEE representative if you have not received an email from us a month before your program start date.
