Preparing to Depart


Congratulations on choosing to study abroad! Now it is time to think about and get excited for your study abroad program!

As a part of your mandatory pre-departure orientation, we would like to share with you a series of brief videos that will help you prepare for a successful program abroad. Click on the icons below to listen to each video. Watch the videos one by one. After you complete each video, log in to your study abroad account and complete the Pre-Departure Orientation Quiz for the video that you reviewed. You will need to obtain 100% on each quiz and you can take it as many times as needed. Continue watching the videos and completing the respective quiz until you have completed all videos.

You will need to complete all videos and quizzes prior to your in-person Pre-Departure Orientation.

For questions, contact us at or call 715-232-2132 or schedule an appointment at

You may begin the Pre-Departure Orientation Videos now!
