Each semester program is preceded by a mandatory Intensive Hebrew course (Ulpan), offering students at different levels of language proficiency the ability to substantially develop their Hebrew skills. Students who are native Hebrew speakers may be able to take up to 2 classes from the university-wide course offerings.

The UW Study Abroad Office can't officially advise you about visas.
The volume and diversity of students participating, the shifting requirements of foreign governments, and the complexity of these applications make it impossible for us to accurately advise you on immigration policies.
If your program requires a visa, documentation will be provided from your host institution after your acceptance.
In most cases, if you are attending an affiliated program you will be billed by, and pay all fees directly to, the program provider or institution operating the program. The IPE Administrative Fee will be billed to your UW student account according to the regular UW tuition billing schedule.
