Fall 2021 Incoming Exchange Applicants

We are currently accepting and processing applications as normal for the Fall 2021 semester. If there are any changes, we will communicate these directly to our exchange partners. We are evaluating incoming exchange as we continue to evaluate outbound programs. The pandemic’s trajectory remains unpredictable due to surges, mutations, and associated governmental responses. This presents a significant challenge to resuming mobility for Fall 2021 and the possibility remains that the current suspension may be extended.
