Program Description:

Students seeking to participate in an Overseas Programs study abroad program not currently approved for their major/minor will need to obtain approval from the department and Overseas Programs.

Open an application by clicking apply now and complete by the deadline.  The application contains these main components.

  1.  Letter of Endorsement:  Please arrange for one or more letters to be written on your behalf specifically encouraging the Study Abroad Advisory Board (SAAB) to approve your petition. One letter must be written by your Departmental Study Abroad Advisor (SAA) discussing the academic suitability of the program and why your academic purpose precludes participation in a WU program approved for your major. If your Departmental SAA has not been your instructor, you may request a second letter of reference from a faculty member who knows your academic work.
  2. Statement of Purpose: Please address your academic goals as well as how the proposed study abroad program and curriculum will enhance your progress in your major field of study or another academic area above and beyond the existing portfolio of study abroad program options approved by your department.
  3. Study Plan
  4. GPA Disclosure

If your petition is approved, submit the program application to Overseas Programs
