Study Abroad

GET Funding

GET funds can be used to pay qualified higher education expenses for many, but not all, UW study abroad programs.

If you participate in a UW study abroad program for which the program fee or tuition charge appears on your UW student account, you can request payment by GET.  UW charges student accounts for UW Faculty-led Programs and University Exchanges.

If you participate in a UW study abroad program for which you pay the program provider directly and the program fee or tuition charge does not appear on your UW student account, you must contact GET to determine whether or not the program is GET eligible.

To use GET for study abroad you must:

  1. Have sufficient GET funds available to pay your program fee(s)
  2. Not exceed the annual payout limit (125 units per year plus any unused units from previous year)
  3. Submit a request and receive approval for payment to the GET program to UW Student Fiscal Services
