While you’re abroad

This is an exciting time in your education. Don’t forget to be safe and keep in touch! If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail the Office of Study Abroad and Global Learning at study.abroad@wku.edu or you can call 001-270-745-6146.

Mobile Phones

US mobile phones may not be practical abroad. While we do not endorse a specific provider, the links below show options that you may want to check out for yourself.

Please check with your cell phone provider prior to using your cell phone abroad. Phone calls placed outside of the US using a US provider are usually significantly more expensive than if they were placed from within the US. Please exercise caution and good judgment when using your cell phone abroad.

Transcripts will not be ready by the time you prepare to return to the US so before your term ends, make sure you instruct your host institution to send your transcript to SAGL:
