An advising session is required before you can open an application. Advising for a semester abroad program is by academic discipline or by region.

  • All students seeking Nursing or Engineering credit abroad must register for the advising session for their discipline.

  • All students seeking College or Wharton credit abroad must register for an advising session by region.

Please follow the appropriate link below to schedule your advising appointment. Note that virtual advising is currently in place for all Penn Abroad advising appointments, as in-person advising is temporarily suspended until further notice.
