Study Abroad Process Getting Started Apply Currently Abroad Returnees

Getting Started

Each year, approximately 150 St. Norbert students study abroad. Simply follow the steps below, and before you know it, you will be experiencing an unforgettable semester abroad. Before you begin, take a few minutes to do the following:

Step 1: Passport

The first step is simple, and perhaps you already have it completed. Apply for a passport immediately if you are considering studying abroad while at St. Norbert. Remember, passports are valid for ten years.

Step 2: First Step Meetings | Peer Advising

If you have not already done so, stop by to chat with a peer advisor or attend a Study Abroad First Step information session. Only after attending a First Step information session OR meeting with a peer advisor will you be able to sign up for an appointment with a study abroad advisor. Peer Advisor hours and First Step meetings for the current semester are listed on our Home Page under News & Updates. 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.

Step 3: Research Programs

Familiarize yourself with the program(s) in which you are interested. Explore our programs using the world map or the search function

You should also begin to research courses that will fulfill requirements for your major(s), minor(s), and the General Education Program. Our lists of Pre-Approved Courses will give you a glimpse at the courses that St. Norbert students have taken at each institution and how these courses transferred back to St. Norbert.

Step 4: Meet with a Study Abroad Advisor

Students may schedule a meeting with a Study Abroad Advisor a semester or two prior to studying abroad but only after attending either a First Step Meeting or meeting with a Study Abroad Peer Advisor (see Step 2 above for details). To request an appointment, simply complete an appointment request form and send it to <>. Prior to your meeting with a Study Abroad Advisor, it is your responsibility to research your program options and choose the program that best meets your needs. To assist you in choosing an appropriate study abroad program, print out the Progress Sheet for your major(s). Check off the requirements that you have already satisfied and 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 and a strong understanding of the courses offered at your study abroad program. If you need guidance, meet with your academic advisor prior to your study abroad advising appointment.
