Study Abroad Advising

Students of all majors should start their study abroad advising journey with a general advising session.
General advising can help students who want to:

  • Learn more about program options
  • Narrow down program options
  • Apply for programs
  • Understand the study abroad process

Advising for programs offered through these units:

College of Agricultural and Life Sciences
College of Engineering
International Internship Program
Wisconsin School of Business

All advising is virtual. The physical spaces for our study abroad advising offices are closed until further notice.

All advising (drop-in and by appointment) will be unavailable November 26-27.
