Just like exchange programs, direct enroll programs are programs in which UW-La Crosse has an agreement with specific universities abroad. However, while UWL send students to these institutions for a semester or academic year, we do not receive students from them. The main difference is that UWL students will pay the host institution's tuition, which will be higher than UWL’s tuition. However, some direct enroll programs are still very affordable as UWL gets discounted tuition due to the direct enroll agreement. Placements in these programs are guaranteed as long as students meet the requirements.
