We are here for you!

Despite the closure of campus, International Education & Engagement is maintaining remote operating hours. IEE staff are available by email, phone or virtual appointments Monday-Friday from 8:00-4:00 p.m.

The access to our main department line is limited to listening to voicemail messages and we request that you e-mail international@uwlax.edu in order to receive a more timely response.

International Student & Scholar Services
Our international student advisers are available and can be contacted by email or by phone. International students residing in the residence halls who need support during this time should contact IEE and Residence Life staff as soon as possible.

Education Abroad
UWL has cancelled all summer 2020 programs 
in addition to all spring 2020 and academic year (AY) 2019-2020 study abroad programs. All spring and AY students are required to return to the U.S.

Decisions for fall 2020 study abroad programs are currently on hold and we will update our website as things progress.

Students can schedule a virtual advising appointment here. We will soon have our Education Abroad 101 information session available online. Students already working with an education abroad advisor are welcome to contact them directly.
