Study Abroad Billing Procedure

In an effort to create an efficient study abroad process for all students, WKU has established a standardized billing procedure for all students going abroad. Fortunately, the vast majority of our study abroad providers (companies independent of WKU through which students can study abroad- e.g. Semester at Sea, Harlaxton, CET, etc.) have endorsed this process. However, should your program provider require a different method, such as sending you an invoice directly, please contact the Study Abroad Office at study.abroad@wku.edu immediately. We will work with the program provider directly to ensure that you are billed appropriately.
