Thank you for your interest in a University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Study Abroad Program!

*The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has developed a new process for non-UWM participants on study abroad programs.

You may now start your application immediately when applying to a study abroad program of your choice.  In order to log in to the application you must have started an application by applying for a program and follow the prompts for non-UWM participants.
You will be required to hand in all the application materials that a UWM participant is required to submit, in addition to a couple other items. 

The most important item is applying to the university and you must start this immediately.  You must be admitted to the university as a non-degree “Special Student” for a study abroad program.  You can do this by going here: Generally within 10 days of application submission, you will be notified by mail when you have been admitted as a Special Student. In your admission letter, you will receive an ePanther ID. Activate your ePanther ID at as soon as you receive it. After activation, please keep this information because sometime in April (our office will contact you), you will be required to log into your account with your ePanther ID and password.

We here at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee apologize for the new requirements but hope this does not deter you from applying to participate in one of our amazing study abroad programs!
