Study Abroad Resource Center and Advising

General study abroad advising usually begins in the Study Abroad Resource Center in the Red Gym. Students from the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS), the College of Engineering, and the Wisconsin School of Business (WSB) can also connect with the study abroad staff in their school/college. Advising for individual programs is based on the “Advising Location” indicated on the program’s webpage.
