Short-Term Admissions


Exchange / Study Abroad Admissions

A substantial portion of our international students are exchange students from our partner institutions, studying here for one or two semesters. These students are part of the “Exchange / Study Abroad Program.”

Join Our Exchange / Study Abroad Program!

Students from our partner universities will require a nomination from their home university to join the exchange program, so if you are coming from one of our partners, please contact your study abroad office right away for information about your registration and application process.

Additionally, both exchange and study abroad (also called “private study abroad”, “free mover”, or “fee-paying” students, depending on your part of the world) should review the eligibility criteria, application information, and timeline below.

For a brief overview of the AIU exchange program, please see our International Exchange Fact Sheet.
