Can I participate in a program sponsored by another school?

Yes.  The programs identified here are those sponsored by Washburn University.  Other universities sponsor programs in other countries.  To request approval, complete the Study Abroad Student Initiated Program Proposal.

You can also search for programs on the Institute of International Education (IIE) website.

How much does it cost?

The cost depends upon the study abroad program you participate in.  Washburn keeps costs down.  For instance, several of our semester long programs require that you pay Washburn's tuition for a semester while studying overseas. Other programs are less expensive because they last for shorter periods of time, e.g., a month in the summer or during spring break.

Is there an application fee?

Yes, but it depends on your applicant type. See the table below for more information:

Do credits earned overseas transfer to Washburn?
