Approximate Semester Abroad Program Costs for 2014/15

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

                otherwise noted.


Cost includes:

  •  WI resident fulltime tuition (Non-Residents: See Tuition note),
  • accommodation for program dates,
  • meal allowance,
  • international airfare UNLESS marked by an asterisk (*).

Asterisk denotes airfare NOT included.

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.
