USF Exchange Program
Semester or Yearlong
Semester exchange programs allow students the opportunity to earn USF college credit from a diverse set of subjects abroad, while still paying an equivalent to USF cost. Students are enrolled abroad and take classes, live, and socialize with local and other international students, gaining a truly enriching experience and in-depth cultural immersion for one to two semesters.
Exchange programs are the most competitive and students are encouraged to begin the application process early to better focus on their personal statement and gather the needed recommendations.
