FSU's Global Exchanges offer students a unique opportunity for cultural immersion and in-depth academic learning at over 40 prestigious international universities. Students participating in an exchange program benefit from the opportunity to become fully immersed in the host university. 

  • FSU Global Exchanges are an affordable way to have a once-in-a-lifetime international experience. Students pay FSU tuition and fees and can use their financial aid. Tuition and fees are waived at the host university, with all academic credit earned at the host institution transferred back to meet FSU degree requirements.

  • FSU Global Exchanges allow students to work toward their degree while developing intercultural skills that distinguish them from their peers. An immersive international experience can help demonstrate to future employers and graduate schools that you are prepared to work in today’s global society.
  • FSU Global Exchanges count toward FSU’s Global Citizenship Certificate and the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society, allowing students to earn a transcript notation for an academic certificate (GCC) and a medal and transcript notation for being inducted into the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society.
