Once you have enrolled in an ARCC Semester, your Gap Director (GD) will contact you with an introduction email along with their contact information. They will be in touch with you from your enrollment until you finish your semester. Along the way, they will send you information about your semester, interesting tidbits about your destination, a Gap Handbook, and will be your “go-to” person if you have questions or concerns before, during, or after your semester. While your GD is your primary contact in the ARCC office, any one of our staff members is available to help you at any time.
In addition to receiving an introduction from your Gap Director, you will also receive information on how to access your online portal where all of your forms and paperwork live. On the portal, we provide you with a number of resources to help get you ready for your semester.
To further prepare you, ARCC will also be hosting a pre-semester webinar which will address many of your questions about your specific semester. This webinar will only be for people attending your specific program and will address issues such as How does travel work? How do I pack my pack? How much money should I bring? What type of adapter plug do I need for electronics?… plus many other questions. This webinar generally takes place 2-3 weeks prior to departure.
As you get closer to your program’s departure, you will undoubtedly have many questions. All you need to do is give us a call to have them answered.
