Study Abroad & Exchange Returnee Opportunities

One of the first things students say to us when they return is “How can I work for the Study Abroad & Exchange office?” 

Paid positions are limited in our office, but there are several internships and volunteer opportunities available.

The Study Abroad & Exchange office at Chico State offers students the chance to up to three units of academic credit for a semester or year-long internship with our office.  The number of units you will receive depends upon which internship you are selected for.

If interested, please carefully read through the position descriptions below in order to identify which opportunity you are most interested and qualified for.

Volunteer with the Study Abroad & Exchange Office:

Some of these activities include:

  • International Education Week
  • International Movie Nights
  • Student Forums
  • Conversation, Culture, and Cuisine (CCC) - this always includes FREE food!
  • Become an "Alumni Ambassador" (speak/e-mail with future participants about your experience)
  • Country-specific Break Out Sessions at Orientation

We always need volunteers for these events. If you want to help us out, without the official commitment of an internship, contact the Study Abroad & Exchange Office, (530) 898-5415 or e-mail
