Study Abroad

Semester Abroad Program Cost Estimates for 2015-2016

Fluctuations in the value of the US dollar may impact final program costs. We pay our bills in the currencies of the countries where you will be studying. In recent years the dollar has lost strength against other major world currencies.  UWSP International Programs Office has NO ability to influence exchange rates.

NOTE: These programs do NOT include airfare, although we are happy to help you with finding a ticket. The cost of the ticket can be added to the overall program cost. You can then apply your financial aid to the program as a whole, including your airline ticket. For information on how to book an airline ticket, please click here.
TUITION: Minnesota residents qualify for reciprocity. Residents of all states other than Wisconsin and Minnesota pay the WI tuition rate plus an additional $1,000 on semester abroad programs. (Short-term programs have a lesser surcharge for non-residents).
NOTE ON VISAS: Many countries require a visa in addition to a valid passport. Visa costs are not part of program costs--and they can be expensive--ranging from approximately $200 to over $500 depending on the country.
