I am not a UW Oshkosh student

Students from other UW System schools may apply to any UW Oshkosh program, including exchange programs, but preference in selecting applicants will go to UW Oshkosh students through the application deadline. If seats are still available following the application deadline, these seats will be assigned to students from other UW System schools in the order in which they submitted completed applications.

Students from other universities and community members may apply to most group programs, but preference in selecting applicants will go to UW Oshkosh students through the application deadline. If seats are still available following the application deadline, these seats will be assigned to students from other universities and community members in the order in which they submitted completed applications.

Students applying through the National Student Exchange may apply to group programs without first spending a semester at UWO and to most other programs only with prior study of at least one session at UWO.  Applications from NSE students will be considered at the time of application and seat assignments will be given in the order in which the OIE receives completed applications.  NSE applicants will not be wait-listed until the application deadline.

I have a disciplinary record.
The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is committed to maintaining an academic and social environment which promotes the intellectual and personal development of students and the safety and welfare of all participants. The ability to participate depends on conduct both before leaving UW Oshkosh and while abroad/away. The UW Oshkosh OIE will check the disciplinary records of all applicants, including applicants from other campuses.  An applicant's disciplinary file may affect the applicant's ability to participate on a program.
I am on probation or suspension.
Students on academic probation may be eligible to participate on an interim program during the semester of probation, but must have prior approval from the OIE Director.  Students on academic probation are not eligible to study abroad on a semester- or year-long program while on probation.
Students on disciplinary probation OR academic or disciplinary suspension are not eligible to study abroad/away. 
I have a criminal record.
Having a criminal record (also called a police record or court record) may affect your ability to obtain permission to enter a foreign country or may affect the cost of obtaining such permission.  A criminal record is more likely to have an effect when traveling to a country that requires permission to enter (in the form of a visa) in advance of travel.  While it is less likely to have an effect if traveling to a country that does not require permission to enter (a visa) in advance of travel, immigration authorities at ports of entry worldwide make final decisions on who may/may not enter, and criminal records are, at times, considered.  Anyone who has previously been denied a visa to enter any country should check with the OIE before planning to travel anywhere outside the U.S.
