Tips for Advising

The Learning Abroad Center is the University of Minnesota's comprehensive resource for study, service-learning, research, work, intern, volunteer, and travel experiences worldwide.  It offers a full range of advising and support services to students, including program selection, academic planning, financial planning, registration, credit, cultural adjustment, travel planning, travel products, and reentry.

Referring Students

Students considering a learning experience abroad should start their engagement with the Learning Abroad Center with a First Step Session. Students can visit the First Step Sessions website for information about LAC's in-person or online First Step resources.
