Short-term exchange programs follow a two-step application process. Students first apply through Global & Experiential Education (G&EE) and then apply through the partner university hosting the program. After a student is admitted by G&EE to a short-term exchange program and we receive their confirmation of participation through the deposit, G&EE will forward the student’s name with our endorsement to the partner university. The student will be contacted by the partner university with instructions on next steps and how to complete their application (if applicable). From this point forward, the decision to accept you as a participant in the program rests with the exchange partner institution and they will contact you directly regarding your application.
