Study Abroad & Exchange

Direct Exchanges

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. 

All Federal and California financial aid (except Work Study) and student loans apply.
