College student exchanges

Attend a university abroad and discover a new culture without the added expense of tuition at an international institution. Students selected to participate in College exchanges pay IU tuition and fees, receive a pre-departure orientation, meet with an IU international programs advisor, and find support through an advisor at the university while abroad. Courses conducted in English are offered at each of these institutions.

Applications to the College for the academic year or fall semester study abroad programs open in late January and are due in March. Applications for spring semester study abroad open in mid-August and are due in September.

If you would like to be notified once applications open, let the College Office of International Affairs know which program you are interested in:
