Non-UWL Student

Students from other institutions can participate in any UWL Education Abroad Program.

All students need to be enrolled at UWL in order to participate in a UWL education abroad program. Therefore, non-UWL students are required to apply and be admitted to UWL as a special non-degree student. Find information about the special non-degree application HERE

There will be a question on the application that will ask to select a reason for the special non-degree application. Select "study abroad" or "exchange" on that question so that the UWL Admissions Office know that you are applying to UWL in order to participate in an education abroad program.
