International Visiting/Exchange Application Procedures
Looking to take a class or two as a Visiting International Student? Or maybe you want to join us for just a semester or two as an International Exchange Student? We’ve got you covered! While the student type depends on the program your home institution offers, the application process for Visiting and Exchange students are the same. Start your application to join us for a short term program!
STEP 1: Apply
The first step to applying to UW Oshkosh is to complete your UW System Application. You can do so by heading over to apply.wisconsin.edu (or clicking that big yellow button above) and clicking “Create an Account to Get Started.” It will start by asking for some information about yourself as well as some general questions to ensure that you are completing the correct application.
We are currently accepting applications for all three UW Oshkosh campuses for the next, upcoming academic semester. Please see our ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ page for more information about application deadlines.
Once you completely and submit your UW System application, move on to Step 2!
STEP 2: Submit Official High School Transcripts
Part of your UW Oshkosh application process includes submitting a copy of your official high school transcripts. You can either have them officially sent to us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to:
UW Oshkosh Undergraduate Admissions
PO Box 2423
Oshkosh, WI 54903-2423
Final official transcripts must be submitted to UW Oshkosh in the original language. All documents not in English must be accompanied by an official English translation. Visit NACES or ACIE to view accepted translators.
STEP 3: Proof of English Proficiency
Your final step in the application process is to submit proof of English proficiency. When you take your English proficiency test, be sure to indicate UW Oshkosh as the school that you want your test results sent to. Indicating UW Oshkosh as your intended school will have them sent to all three campuses of UW Oshkosh. If they require a mailing address, you can use the same mailing address that you sent your transcripts to in Step 2.
Below are the required scores for UW Oshkosh:
|TEST TYPE||OSHKOSH CAMPUS SCORE||FOX/FDL CAMPUS SCORE|

*English proficiency scores are not required if country of origin’s official language is English, the language of the classroom instruction is English (proof required**), OR if you have successfully completed at least one year of study in the United States.
**Proof can include a letter from the school, a link/screenshot of the school handbook or website or you can send an email to email@example.com to request explanation/submit proof.
