Study Abroad - Anyone. Anytime. Virtually Anywhere.

Study Abroad

Given the increasing incidence of COVID-19 at an international level as well as scientists predicting a continued spread of the virus, we are not able to ensure the health, safety, and fiscal solvency of WSU students traveling abroad. As a result, WSU has made the difficult decision to continue the suspension of international travel for our students through summer 2021.
  • Anyone. Anytime. Anywhere.
  • Make lifelong friends
  • See the world from where you are
