Application Process for Incoming Students

Incoming Students 

Freeman welcomes more than 150 international exchange students each year through the exchange program. International exchange students are an integral part of the Freeman School of Business and contribute to the vibrant global community at the school.

To be eligible for the exchange program, an applicant must be enrolled as a full-time student at one of our partner institutions. For more information on how to apply, students should consult with their home school's International Exchange Office and may visit Freeman Abroad's online student portal for more information.

Incoming exchange students are directly enrolled in business courses alongside Freeman students and can choose from the full course catalog, as long as they meet course eligibility requirements. Exchange students pay their home university tuition and are awarded credit at their home university upon completion of the program.
