Study Abroad & Exchange

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 several internships and volunteer opportunities are available.

The Study Abroad & Exchange office at Chico State offers students 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 review the position(s) below to identify which aligns with your interest.

Volunteer with the Study Abroad & Exchange team:

Throughout each semester, we arrange many events on campus to help educate our students and community about studying abroad / away and the benefits of the internationalization of our campus.

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 without the official commitment of an internship, contact Study Abroad & Exchange at (530) 898-5415 or e-mail
