Before you start your internship or training program, you must complete CIEE’s online orientation. The orientation takes about 60 minutes and offers useful advice about:

  • Traveling to America
  • Making the most of your program
  • Important program rules and regulations

You can complete the orientation any time after you receive your DS-2019 form. However, you must complete it before you depart for the U.S.

Please note: 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.

  • High Speed Internet access – connection of 150kbps or higher
