An exchange program allows you to live and study abroad for a full semester, giving you a more robust personal experience and allowing you to explore the culture on your own instead of following a group itinerary.

Foreign courses need to be pre-approved for transfer credit. Please review the process and complete a Credit Transfer Form before applying to an exchange program.
