Exchange Program

Exchange programing offers you the most comprehensive and culturally immersive international collegiate experience. The Center for Global Education has partnered with over 30 universities around the world to offer you the chance to participate in long term and summer study abroad as an exchange student.

Participating in study abroad on exchange is a unique experience because it offers UCM students and students from our exchange partner universities the chance to study abroad while still paying their home institution rate. This make long and short term study abroad both cost-effective and efficient!

What is an Exchange Program?

An exchange program is an agreement made between UCM and a university in another country to "exchange" students, faculty and ideas to foster international understanding and education. Exchanges are mutually beneficial because UCM gets to send student to our foreign partner universities and those universities get to send student to UCM.
