1. There is individual university autonomy in the student selection process for students who do not meet the published guidelines.
2. Students requesting that their minor child/ren accompany them will not be accepted into the WIS program. The number of participants does not allow for a room for a parent and child/ren. The program does not have adequate facilities nor does it offer a support system for students with children.
3. Students must reside at Dalkeith House and, therefore, will not be accepted into the WIS program on a "tuition only" basis.
4. If a student has been suspended from living in campus housing, they will not be allowed to participate in the WIS program.

The Office of International Education/Programs will notify you when the WIS student orientation will be held on your campus before your departure. It is very important that you attend this session. It will give you an opportunity to meet fellow WIS participants and find out more specific information about the program (i.e., travel information, the schedule for your session, what you need to bring with you, etc.). Each of the campus contact sites has a collection of materials related to the WIS program and travel abroad that you should examine at your convenience. Other things to stay on top of during this time are Financial Aid, if it applies to you, and applying for your passport if you do not already have one. Also, Wisconsin residents may be eligible for a study abroad grant.
