If you have not already done so, attend an information session. Only after attending an informational session will you be able to sign up for an appointment with a study abroad advisor. General information sessions are primarily held at the beginning of every semester. Consult our Events page for more information on study abroad events.
You may also watch our new Prezi presentation, which gives an overview of studying abroad at St. Norbert College.

||Meet with an Advisor
First, print out your the Progress Sheet for your major(s). Check off the requirements that you have already met, along with the requirements you are fulfilling in the current semester. You must bring the Progress Sheet(s) with you to your advising session. In order to ensure a productive meeting, it's important to have a strong understanding of the requirements that you would like to fulfill for your major(s), minor(s), and the General Education Program while abroad. If you need guidance, meet with your academic advisor.
