Before You Leave Wofford

Upload your Four Year PlannerCourse Approval Form, and your Release for Study Abroad to your online Wofford Study Abroad application page. You will be expected to register for the semester following study abroad on myWofford. However, if this isn't possible, the Office of International Programs will take care of your registration and therefore you should email an appropriate course schedule with CRNs in case a problem arises. During your semester overseas you will receive emails from the Registrar and the Office of International Programs announcing registration. 

If your program requires your absence from this campus during January, successful completion of the program will stand in lieu of Interim. However, you will NOT receive 3 hours of credit. You will not be able to register if you have any holds on your account so be sure to take care of any fines or other holds before leaving to go overseas.

In addition, please contact the following staff before departing for off-campus study:

Sherri Gossett

Student Account Administrator, Business Office

You should contact Sherri Gossett with any billing questions before departure. Please note that Wofford will charge an administrative fee for study abroad. Do not forget to pay all your outstanding fines and bills to ensure that you have no holds on your account when you leave. Also, each student must acknowledge and sign the Off-Campus Study Statement of Understanding via their Wofford application checklist.


April Baur

Assistant Director of Financial Aid

If you have any Financial Aid and/or Scholarship questions, please make an appointment with Mrs. Baur. Please note that she cannot review your financial aid package specifics with you until after midterms.


Allen Lollis

Assistant Dean of Students for Residence Life

You must contact Allen Lollis about your room assignment for the following semester. Students studying abroad must still pay a deposit to Wofford to reserve their spot ($300 for day students, $500 for residents).

Resident students planning to study off-campus during the spring semester whose program dates conflict with the Interim term must vacate their residence halls no later than the last day of final exams in fall semester. Those whose program dates do not conflict with the Interim term should enroll in Interim and plan to vacate their residence halls by the Friday before spring semester at Wofford begins. All resident students must return their room key to Residence Life before departure unless otherwise instructed by a Residence Life staff member.
