  4. Pay UWL Resident tuition
  5. Pay housing and meals at the host instituion abroad
  6. Spend your semester or academic year in Spain!
*Students MUST first start the UWL study abroad application process.
Students can ONLY start the CCUC application process after our office
nominates them.
VISA INFORMATION
Students MUST apply for a student visa in advance. The closest consulate is in
Chicago
. Check with them when they will accept your visa application. Most
consulates require that you start your application and reserve your visa
appointment a minimum of four months in advance of departure. Therefore,
students should make their appointment with the Spanish Consulate
as soon as the receive their acceptance letter from CUCC.

UWL DOES NOT arrange student visas. Students are required to independently
arrange for their student visa and need to be aware that this is a TIME SENSITIVE
requirement that will include an additional out-of-pocket cost.
