About our Programs

The Visiting International Student Program (VISP) welcomes students interested in short-term credit and noncredit study at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. VISP staff provide personalized advising as well as a variety of cultural and social events to help students feel welcome on our campus.


Our VISP credit students enroll in regular university courses taught by world-class faculty at one of the nation’s top public universities.


Our VISP noncredit programming includes pre-college summer camps and customized programs for university-level students throughout the year.
