Carnegie Mellon continually seeks opportunities to partner with institutions abroad to exchange students, faculty, and researchers. Because of Carnegie Mellon’s active approach to making international connections, we have several exchange partners abroad. These programs are based on faculty relationships between the two institutions and have been evaluated for academic compatibility.
Exchange Programs allow students, in most cases, to use their Carnegie Mellon funding while attending a university abroad. These programs are reciprocal. We also receive students from the institutions to which we send students. This allows Carnegie Mellon students to build friendships with the students from that institution both prior to and during the study abroad experience, providing a true cultural exchange.
Carnegie Mellon students participating in these programs continue to pay tuition (billed at the junior/3rd-year level) directly to Carnegie Mellon and receive, in most cases, the same financial aid package. Students are responsible for paying all other fees, such as room and board, directly to the exchange institution.
**Countries with a US State Department Travel Warning are not eligible for exchange during the time the Warning is in effect.
