Semester Exchange 

Semester exchange programs give SUU students the opportunity to study abroad at one of our 50+ partner universities around the world for a semester or full year. While abroad, students take a full-time load of courses that can transfer back to SUU and help them towards their degree. Students on exchange only pay their typical SUU tuition. 

  • Now is the time to begin making your study abroad plans! If you want to live and study and travel overseas, we can help you make it happen. Stop by our office or contact us.
  • A few of SUU's partner schools are marked as "non-exchange". "Non-exchange" means students will be responsible for paying the host school's tuition rather than SUU's. Questions about exchange and non-exchange schools can be directed to Zoe Prettyman (
