In an exchange program, a UT Dallas student, paying UT Dallas fall or spring tuition, switches spots with a student at a foreign university. Exchange programs give students the opportunity to immerse themselves in a culture different from their own and earn business course credit at the same time. For more information on the exchange programs that UT Dallas has to offer, please visit Education Abroad.

UT Dallas exchange programs are subject to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) guidelines.
