Study Abroad Exchange Opportunities

Why Choose a UCM Exchange?

  • UCM partners with universities abroad to provide cultural learning experiences at a reduced cost
  • Outgoing exchange students receive a $1500 International Study Grant for their first full semester 
  • Pay UCM in-state tuition and study abroad
  • Make a space for an exchange student to come to UCM from abroad
  • Housing and meals are similar to, and in some cases, cheaper than, Missouri rates

These are highly competitive opportunities because the Study Abroad office nominates only 1 exchange student per host university.  Stop by Union 302 for information or advising!
