Visa and international admissions

UW–Madison cannot provide US visa status for international students in this program. It the student’s responsibility to make sure that their current visa status with regard to the U.S. (if you are currently in the US on a status such at H4, J-2, etc.) allows them legally to enroll in an on-line program of study.

Students should confer with the US institution that issued their current visa paperwork if they have questions. UW–Madison cannot provide a US visa status that will allow for study in UW–Madison Online.

If students plan to enroll in the program while living outside the borders of the U.S., no U.S. visa status is needed. International students are welcome and encouraged to apply to one of our fully online programs.
