Note: UGA & Terry College have residency requirements that limit how much transfer credit counts toward the BBA (see UGA Bulletin).

Cultural Immersion

Students are encouraged to engage with the local language and culture through coursework, campus activities, field trips and personal travel while abroad. Most programs offer credit and/or non-credit bearing cultural enrichment options.

Costs

Students enrolling in a UGA Exchange Program pay a program fee equal to GA Resident tuition and fees. Scholarships and financial aid, including HOPE scholarship, apply to the program fee. The costs of room & board, local transportation, books and supplies, airfare, passport/visa, entertainment and miscellaneous travel will vary depending upon the destination, dates, and foreign exchange rates.

Eligibility & Application

Most Exchange Programs are open to UGA students in good academic standing with a minimum 2.5 GPA. Additionally, you should be self-motivated, intellectually curious, flexible, resourceful, and outgoing. Students should be mindful of UGA and Terry College residency requirements for graduation (see Bulletin).
