Flight Information

UW System policy requires that you purchase your study abroad airline tickets through a UW System contracted travel agency. The Office of International Education will send you an email message with a program-specific “Group Code” for you to reference when you call the travel agency to book your flights. PLEASE NOTE: your airline ticket is a personal cost separate from the program expenses charged by OIE.  

We have specified preferred flights with the travel agency based upon the schedules established by group leaders and/or in-country providers. Travelers whose itineraries deviate from these preferred flights create the risk of delays and other complications not only for themselves, but also for all other group participants.

Those who seek itineraries outside the group parameters must: (1) secure prior approval from the OIE Director, and (2) complete their air ticket purchases through the appropriate UW System contracted travel agency 

All expenses associated with travel deviations are the responsibility of the individual traveler and are not included in program fees.
