How Does Virtual Study Abroad Work at WU?

Winthrop students can apply to take 1-3 virtual study abroad courses (or 3-9 credit hours) while taking WU classes for a minimum total of 12 credit hours or a maximum total of 18 credit hours. Approved students can earn transfer credit for all approved study abroad classes, including virtual study abroad courses, in which they earn C- or above. But first, all students interested in applying for study abroad (in-person or virtual) are required to complete the study abroad group advising module on Blackboard. and to meet with the study abroad coordinator. For Spring 2021 virtual programs, the advising deadline is September 18, and the WU application deadline is Oct. 1.
