Note: If you decide to transfer to a different school or program after you come to the United States but before attending class at UWM, you must complete the following steps:

  • Email us at esl@uwm.edu and let us know that you do not intend to come to the program
  • Submit to us a welcome letter from the school/program that you intend to transfer into
  • Pay a $300 exit free

If you are considering transferring to a different school/leaving the UWM Intensive English Program after you arrive in the United States but before you actually attend class, please keep in mind that you have 30 days from your arrival in the US to transfer and begin study at the new institution.

Financial Obligation of All Students

A student who enrolls in IEP classes is making a financial commitment to UWM for full payment of tuition and fees for the entire period for which the student is registered. Each enrolled student has an online PAWS account where financial information and dates are recorded. The student (not the sponsor) is responsible for payment of all charges on the PAWS account.
