Exchange Programs

Exchange programs are geared towards students who are independent and ready for cultural immersion. Students will essentially be treated as a local student at the host university. The term "exchange" means that UNC Charlotte students study abroad at partner institutions and an international student studies at UNC Charlotte (essentially "swapping places"). This model is ultimately what allows UNC Charlotte students to continue to pay full-time, UNC Charlotte Tuition & Fees while they are abroad on this type of program.

Types of Exchange Programs

There are three different types of exchanges: UNC Charlotte Exchange, Statewide Exchange and ISEP Exchange. Combined, there are over 150+ exchange programs to choose from. One exchange type is not better than the other; the program structure and universities are simply different. Be sure to research each exchange type to find the right one for you.
