Applying to Study Abroad

Before applying to a study abroad program or university, students must meet with the Study Abroad Advisor to discuss the application and approval process.  Please contact Ms. Kip Brooks at kbrooks@wlu.edu to schedule an appointment.

Applying to study abroad is usually a two-step process.

  1. Students must apply to the Center for International Education for W&L approval of their study abroad plan on-line at go.wlu.edu/studyabroadapplication.  Using this site, each student receives individual permission from the appropriate department head or academic dean at W&L for credit for each course taken abroad, approval from his/her Faculty Advisor, and approval from the Center for International Education for the program. The deadlines for applying to W&L for study abroad are as follows:

    For Fall Term and Full Year study, the application deadline is
    March 20.
    For Winter Term study, the application deadline is
    October 20.
    Fornon W&L Spring Term study, the application deadline is
    February 1.
      For Summer Term study, the application deadline is
    March 1.

    Please note: if the deadline falls on a week end, the application is due on the last business day before the deadline
    .
  2. Each student must also apply for admission to the sponsoring study abroad institution or program, by the program's stated deadline.
