These programs are offered through bilateral exchange agreements between CSU, Chico and our partner universities overseas in order to provide students with a complete cultural immersion experience abroad.  Each Direct Exchange program has a unique arrangement upon which the exchange was founded and varies in terms of exchange duration, course offerings, requirements, application procedures and services offered to exchange students.
