What is a Double Degree?

UIW double degree programs allow students the opportunity to receive two degrees: one from UIW and one from a UIW Sister School. Through application and interview, students are selected to complete at least one academic year abroad to complete the Sister School's program. After successfully completing the Sister School's program, students return to UIW to complete their degree plan. Upon graduation, double degree program students receive their degrees.

To start your application for a double degree program, please email the following documents to UIW's Study Abroad Office at studyabroad@uiwtx.edu.

  • Unofficial UIW transcript showing an overall GPA of 3.0+
  • Two letters of recommendation from UIW faculty or staff (PDF)
  • Copy of passport or proof of purchase (if passport is in process)

Within the email, please state the program for which you are requesting to apply and include your full name and your UIW student ID.
