Non-Approved programs

Students may find an education abroad program which is not part of the UW-Platteville Education Abroad approved program portfolio.  If the program is offered by an Affiliate Program Sponsor, students may may petition to participate on the program through UW-Platteville Education Abroad via the online Petition for Approved Participation on a Non-Approved Education Abroad Program.

The UW-Platteville Education Abroad office will only consider petitions to participate on a currently non-approved education abroad program offered by an Affiliate Program Sponsor.  If the student is successful in their petition, they:

  • apply through UW-Platteville Education Abroad and the program sponsor.
  • remain enrolled at UW-Platteville.
  • receive resident credit.
  • can typically apply all of their standard financial aid to their program cost (students are encouraged to confirm the applicability of their personal aid package with the UW-Platteville Financial Aid office).
  • are eligible for education abroad scholarships offered through UW-Platteville.

If a student is not able to identify a program in the UW-Platteville Education approved program portfolio or a non-approved program offered by a current Affiliate Program Sponsor, they may participate on the program independently.  If a student participates on a non-approved program through a non-affiliate, they:

  • do not apply through UW-Platteville Education Abroad and instead apply directly to the program sponsor.
  • do not remain enrolled at UW-Platteville.
  • do not receive resident credit and must transfer their credits back to UW-Platteville after successfully completing their program abroad.
  • must transfer their financial aid from UW-Platteville to the program sponsor.
  • are not eligible for any education abroad scholarships through UW-Platteville.
