School officials said Wednesday that they had suspended the South Korea program.

The move affects five students studying at two South Korean universities this spring. They will be allowed to return to the United States.

A university spokesman said he didn't know their individual destinations. The university  suspended its exchange program with China in January, preventing seven students from traveling there.

UW-Milwaukee, meanwhile, has asked two students studying in South Korea to return.
