The Education Abroad Office at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville wants to provide details of some of the fees and policies associated with education abroad through UW-Platteville.

UW-Platteville Students

Application Fee

All UW-Platteville students applying to study abroad through the UW-Platteville Education Abroad office is required to submit a nonrefundable $75 application fee (cash or check payable to UW-Platteville).

If you are applying to affiliate programs, the program provider may also charge an application fee, and you should check the program provider’s website for the current application fee. If you have demonstrated high financial need, you may visit the Education Abroad office to discuss financial assistance.

Nonrefundable Confirmation Deposit for UW-Platteville Students

Students applying to UW-Platteville Education Abroad programs will be asked to submit a $500 nonrefundable confirmation deposit to the UW-Platteville Education Abroad office within two weeks of being notified of their official acceptance to the program.

Students applying to UW-Platteville exchange programs and affiliate programs will be charged a $550 nonrefundable confirmation deposit to their PASS account after they have officially committed to the program. You are asked to pay this deposit within two weeks of being notified of your official acceptance into the program. You will be prompted in your online application to submit payment once you have officially been accepted, so no payment is due until then. If you are not accepted into the program upon application review, you do not have to pay the deposit.

These deposits cover:

  • Support from UW-Platteville Education Abroad office before, during, and after studying abroad
  • The mandatory pre-departure orientation and re-entry sessions
  • Eligibility for the UW-Platteville International Study Grant
  • General administrative expenses
  • Mandatory CISI health and medical insurance

If you choose to withdraw from the program after submitting your nonrefundable confirmation deposit, you will not be refunded the $500 or $550. If you choose to withdraw or not continue with your application after the two weeks following your acceptance, you will still be responsible for payment, even if it has not yet been paid.

In addition, if you are applying to affiliate programs, you may be charged an additional nonrefundable confirmation deposit fee upon acceptance. Please check the program provider’s website for current administrative fees.

If you apply to UW-Platteville Short-Term Faculty-Led programs, you will be charged the entire program fee on your PASS account upon successfully registering for the course. Additional information and exact costs will be provided upon acceptance.

Program Payment Methods

The exact payment schedule will vary from program to program but in general:

  • If you apply to UW-Platteville Education Abroad programs, you will be billed for program cost through your UW-Platteville PASS account and will pay in the same manner as you pay for a semester on campus.
  • If you apply to UW-Platteville Short-Term Faculty-Led programs, you will be billed for program cost through PASS, and payments are subject to the regular payment deadlines of the Cashier's Office.

Non-UW-Platteville Students

Application Fee for Non-UW-Platteville Students

For any UW-Platteville Education Abroad program, you will be asked to submit a $500 nonrefundable confirmation deposit to the UW-Platteville Education Abroad office within two weeks of being notified of your official acceptance into the program.

You will be prompted in the online application to submit payment once you have officially been accepted, so no payment is due until then. If you are not accepted into the program upon application review, you do not have to pay the deposit.

If you choose to withdraw from the program after submitting the nonrefundable confirmation deposit, you will not be refunded the $500. If you choose to withdraw or not continue with your application after the two weeks following your acceptance, you will still be responsible for payment, even if it has not yet been paid.
