Pre-Departure Orientation

General Online Orientation
All students studying abroad at Marquette are required to complete a mandatory general online orientation. You will access the orientation through your study abroad account following being accepted to the program and must complete the modules prior to the in-person orientation. The modules cover culture, health & insurance, safety and sexual violence prevention training.

In-person Orientation
You are also required to attend an in-person orientation. The first two hours will be spent discussing health and safety issues and culture. The final hour will be a program-specific orientation session where you will meet the other Marquette students participating in your program, speak with alumni from your program and discuss the logistics you will need to know to make your study abroad experience a success.

The in-person orientation for students studying abroad during Spring 2016 will be held:
