Exchange students are students from one of The University of Missouri-St. Louis’ partner universities that plan to study at UMSL for one semester or one academic year. Exchange students do not want to obtain their entire degree from UMSL and do not pay UMSL tuition and fees. They are seeking to experience life and culture in the United States as a student, for only a short time. The terms of each agreement are unique, but they allow students at both institutions to study abroad while paying tuition at their home institutions. Please check with your international office to see if your institution has a current exchange agreement with UMSL.
If you have been nominated by your home institution for an exchange with UMSL, we will contact you directly with further instructions on how to complete this application.
Please contact the International Exchange Coordinator before January 31 to determine how many placements are available for the following academic year. Then, nominate your student(s) to participate in the Exchange Student Program at the UMSL before the February nomination deadline. All students participating in exchange, regardless of term, must be nominated by this deadline; spring nominees, however, will have until October to complete application materials.
