Study Abroad


UW Study Abroad supports academic departments with administration of departmental exchanges. Departmental exchanges facilitate an equal exchange of students between a UW department and the partner university.

  • UW units must maintain an exchange balance within an acceptable range.
  • UW Study Abroad reviews balances annually.
  • This site is a resource for advisers and administrators who manage and coordinate exchanges on behalf of your department.
