Study Abroad Fees

The Education Abroad office is here to help facilitate your study abroad experience and can advise on which experience best fits your academic, personal, and professional goals. Your EdAbroad advisor will have you registered at WWU for credit-bearing programs to maintain your full-time status while you are abroad, so that you don’t have to reapply for admission at Western upon your return. The University created the Education Abroad office as a self-supporting unit, which means EdAbroad advising staff salaries and operations are funded by fees rather than tuition. 

You will be charged an application fee and a concurrent enrollment fee. The fees will be billed to your student account at the time of registration.  The amount of the concurrent enrollment fee is determined by the length of the program you choose, as per the table below. These fees are subject to change as posted in WWU's Course Fee & Service Fee Schedule, which is usually published in August for the upcoming academic year.
