Applying to Study Abroad

If the deadline falls on a weekend, the application is due on the last business day before the deadline.

After researching available programs, students may meet with the Study Abroad Advisor to discuss the application and approval process. Please contact Cindy Irby to schedule an appointment.


Exchanges: Applying to a W&L exchange involves two steps. You must first complete and submit the W&L application for your chosen exchange university. Upon review, W&L will nominate a select number of applicants. Nominated students will then receive instructions for submitting the exchange partner application.

Outside and Partner Programs (Semester and Summer Terms): Applying to an outside program through a third-party provider (such as IES, CIEE, IFSA-Butler, etc.) or a partner program (such as Mansfield College at Oxford University) requires both an application to W&L to participate in education abroad and an application through the provider for acceptance to the program.

Begin the W&L application by first researching approved programs. After you have selected a program, click the "Apply Now" option.

All students studying abroad for academic credit must request course approval for credit transfer from Department Heads and their Academic Advisor.
