Exchanges are considered one of the most affordable ways to study abroad as students pay regular TAMU tuition and fees. These programs are also one of the most independent and immersive ways to study abroad, giving students the opportunity to live and learn with students from the host country, as well as with other international exchange students from across the globe. Due to the independent nature of these programs and the unique academic experience, students participating in exchange programs are required
to have a minimum 3.0 GPA. Available for semester and/or academic year study, with limited programs offered during the summer term, exchanges are ideal for independent and proactive students with a flexible mindset to adjust to different styles of teaching/learning and course expectations.
