Already started an application and want to know your status?

Log in to your online study abroad/away application to see the status of your application; this is shown in the the upper right-hand corner of the screen. If you are on the waitlist for a program, you can expand the "office use only" section to see your position on the waitlist.

Our on-line application system is unable to generate application materials lists which are specific to each individual study abroad program, therefore missing "program-specific" materials aren't outlined on the system. Use the check boxes from the application checklist on your program's website to keep track of forms you've completed and submitted.

None of UWO's Programs Work for Me! Search through study abroad programs offered by other UW System institutions.

If you choose a program that is not sponsored by UW Oshkosh, review this "Advising Guide to Non-sponsored Programs" to ensure that you've followed all the right steps for course transfer, financial aid, academic leave of absence and university re-entry, and more.

Review Program Models

A UWO professor accompanies a group of students throughout their stay in the foreign country, helping to focus students' experiences and offering student support. Students take courses from these UWO professors or from host school professors, are enrolled at UWO for UWO credit, and earn grades from UWO professors.
Direct Enroll
Students are enrolled directly in a host university and are either part of the general student body or are part of an international student group (when at an institution serving foreign students only). Courses are offered and graded by the host institution and are taught by professors from that institution. Direct enrollment offers immersion, a wide range of courses and use of the host institution's facilities. Students can elect to study abroad for a short-term program (January Interim or Summer term), single semester or full year. UWO professors/staff do not generally accompany students on direct enroll programs.
Student Exchange
UWO students pay tuition to attend other universities, allowing students with tuition scholarships or veterans benefits to participate at lower cost.
