Immerse yourself in Spanish language and culture whilst studying abroad in San Sebastian! Semester exchange programs allow students the opportunity earn USF college credit from a diverse set of subject abroad, while still paying an equivalent to USF cost. Students are enrolled abroad and take classes, live, and socialize with local Spanish 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.

The exchange program cost is based upon in-state tuition rates for a full-time course load. Out-of-State and International students pay the same rate for the purposes of study abroad programs.
Not included in this cost:
- Housing abroad (arranged with and paid to host school)
- Additional travel or medical insurance
- Any transportation fees
- Passport and Visa fees
- Any additional or personal expenses
In addition, students are expected to pay Emergency medical insurance in the amount of $50/month.
TECNUN can help students find housing but cannot secure it. Students must contact the international office at TECNUN once accepted to make arrangements.
Students must be at least of sophomore standing when they attend, but may apply as freshman.
Graduating seniors may not participate in their last semester as program dates and processing time would delay their intended graduation.
A 3.0 GPA minimum is considered competitive for consideration.
Students are asked to not purchase any tickets until they receive an acceptance letter from the host school overseas. This letter will have details on orientation dates and arrival airports.
Students are responsible for arranging their own flights and transportation to the host school.

Those who will travel independently, either in advance of the program or after the program ends, must ensure that they have insurance coverage valid outside the U.S.
Every program participant MUST have a passport, valid six months from the date of travel. Students are responsible for their own immigration documents.
