Incoming Exchange Students

Welcome to the Study Abroad Office at Chico State!

IMPORTANT: This page is for students of our Partner Institutions only (please see the list of our Partner Institutions). You must first be selected by the International Programs Office at your host university if you wish to come to CSU, Chico on exchange.

We are happy that you are considering coming to Chico and studying with us.

We do everything we can to guarantee our international students will have a wonderful experience in Chico. While you are here we arrange several activities for you through our International Buddy Program. These activities are arranged to help you meet American students, experience America, and learn more about our culture.

Chico is located north of Sacramento and is only a few hours away from Lake Tahoe, San Francisco and the Oregon border. A three hour drive will bring you to the mountains, the city or the beach.

Our University offers you a quality education in a gorgeous setting. Whether you enjoy sports, shopping, hiking, mountain biking, eating different types of cuisine or sitting at local cafes, Chico has it all.

We look forward to you coming to Chico and exploring our home to its fullest!
