Exchange Programs

Are you interested in taking courses at a foreign university taught directly by their faculty? The most independent study abroad experience, our exchange program, allows students to immerse themselves in the culture and courses of a foreign university while still receiving TTU credit. Students can take classes alongside international students and other study abroad students from across the United States for a semester, or even an academic year. Regardless of the institution, students will pay TTU tuition and separate housing costs. Students are also responsible for airfare and personal expenses such as food, shopping, passport/visa, etc.

Payment and Cancellation Policy

Students can choose to participate in one of three study abroad program types. Each program type has a different payment process. Read the full Texas Tech Study Abroad Payment guide.

Once accepted to a program, students must officially notify the Study Abroad Office, IN WRITING OR BY EMAIL, if they wish to withdraw. It is NOT SUFFICIENT to withdraw an application on-line, or to fail to complete requirements. Students must also notify the program provider, host institution, or faculty program leader as appropriate. Students who withdraw from a study abroad program and do not return to Texas Tech for that term should contact the Registrar's Office to understand how their enrollment at Texas Tech may be affected.
