Pre-Departure Orientation

General Online Orientation
All students studying abroad at Marquette are required to complete a mandatory general online orientation. Students will access the orientation through their study abroad account following being accepted to the program and must complete the modules prior to the in-person orientation.

In-person Orientation
Students 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 students will meet with their peers going abroad, speak with alumni from their program and discuss the logistics they will need to know to make their study abroad experience a success.

The in-person orientation for students studying abroad during Summer and Fall 2015 will be held:

Sexual Violence Prevention Training
In addition, all students are required to attend a Sexual Violence Prevention Training. Numerous sessions are offered at a variety of dates and times. Students will sign up for a date and time that works in their schedule.
