Exchange Programs at Partner Universities

Nicholls State University maintains exchange agreements with university partners around the world. Through these exchange programs, you pay tuition at Nicholls and can use all of your financial aid, including TOPS. You will enroll in classes (pre-approved by your Nicholls academic program), live with the local students and become a member of the host university community. While the International Programs office at the host university is available to assist you, you will be more independent on these exchange programs than with other study abroad options.

In general, students are responsible for the following expenses during their study abroad experience. Costs may vary depending on the foreign institution.

– All travel-related expenses, including any fees related to acquiring a study visa
– Housing and living expenses
– Meals
– Textbooks and school supplies
