Colgate University Exchange Student Opportunities

In addition to study groups, extended study groups, and approved programs, Colgate University also offers semester-long exchange programs for Colgate students at international partner institutions. 

About Our Exchange Opportunities

Semester-long exchange programs at our partner universities immerse students in new cultures, perspectives, and experiences. Students live in university housing with their peers and receive instruction and mentoring from the faculty members at the exchange university.

Colgate Exchange Offerings

Student exchanges for the following academic year are announced annually in early October.
