The first thing you should do when you arrive in your host city is to contact your family and/or friends to let them know you've reached your destination. If your family needs to reach you while you are abroad because of an emergency, they can pass a message to you through the Office of Overseas Citizens Services, which can be contacted from within the United States at (888)-407-4747 (toll free), and from overseas at (202) 501-4444. The Office of Overseas Citizens Services will contact the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in the country in which you are traveling in order to pass the message to you.
One great benefit of many of our programs is the opportunity to travel to other destinations in your free time. However, if you plan to do any extra traveling ask your on-site program director about travel procedures. Your program director may want to know where you are going, where you are staying and when you are returning, and may have restrictions forbidding your travel to particular locations in/around the host country.
Brand names and measurements of prescription medications differ and you may have difficulty finding your specific medication while abroad. We encourage students with medical conditions to wear a medical alert bracelet or pendant, and to research how to replace medications in the host country, if necessary.

Remember that as a traveler, you are a representative of ASU, our partner institutions/organizations and your home country. Be proud of who you represent and always behave in a respectful manner that will leave a positive impression for your host countries, thereby building lasting friendships for you and for all future travelers. Students participating in all ASU study abroad programs are required to follow the laws of the country in which they are traveling (including laws relating to drugs/alcohol) and are expected to conduct themselves within the applicable laws and policies , as well as with respect for cultural expectations for the countries they will be visiting (including norms relating to alcohol consumption, dress, and dating/sex/sexuality).
Remember that you are subject to the Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR) Student Code of Conduct while participating in an ASU study abroad program, and that you represent both ASU and the United States.
