Exchange Programs

Immerse Yourself in Another Culture on an Augustana Exchange.

It's a whole new university experience when you enroll at a partner school through Augustana.

Exchange programs offer you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture of a university campus across the globe.  With 7 different destinations, and options for trimester, semester or year-long exchanges, you have options that can set your college years apart.  Study in English or immerse yourself in another language, exchanges let you choose how adventurous to be.  These programs are ideal for students who want to become part of a new community, make new friends, study in a new environment and experience life through the eyes of a different culture.

All Exchange Programs are Augie Choice eligible and all are considered Learning Communities.

Why an exchange program might be right for you?

Are you an independent person, willing to challenge yourself in a new educational environment?  Do you want intensive language study, or perhaps you want to really get to know a new part of the world?  Do you want an authentic experience in an international university?   Whether for a term, a semester or a year, exchange programs are perfect for students who want to experience what life and what college is like around the world.  An exchange lets you go deeper into the host culture than you will if you travel with a large group of Augie students, and it gives you the ability to take classes with native students.

Add to this the fact that because you pay Augie tuition, exchange program courses are not transfer credits, and can count towards your graduation requirements.  Also, in many cases exchange programs represent the least expensive programs available, since you are paying Augustana tuition, room or room & board, rather than paying both for tuition and for program costs of an Augie group program.

It takes an adventurous, self-confident and motivated student to truly get the most out of an exchange program, but if you are excited by the idea of living, studying and experiencing another culture without the "Augie bubble", exchanges might be just what you are looking for.

 For All Programs: 

Eligibility requirements may vary. Applications are open to all current Augustana sophomores, juniors, or seniors in solid academic standing (2.00 GPA minimum, 2.50 for exchanges).  Augie Choice funds are available to students following completion of 60 academic credits (typically first available for the summer after the sophomore year.)  Additionally, some programs permit students to utilize Augie Choice as sophomores.  Program sites are subject to change and may or may not be repeated in future years.
