Welcome to PAO ’s Online General Orientation. This site is designed to provide information and resources for students who are planning to study abroad. Although we encourage all students to attend the in-person General Orientation, the online version covers similar topics and provides valuable resources.
You will be presented with relevant material for each section followed by a quiz question. Answering the question correctly will forward you to the next section. If you answer incorrectly you will be asked to review the material and try again.
The orientation has narration and video's so be sure to have your sound on.
