Student Exchange Program

What is the Student Exchange Program or SEP?

The Student Exchange Programs are available to students coming from one of UC’s partner institutions abroad.  SEP participants pay tuition directly to their home institution. A signed official agreement must be in place with your university for you to participate on one of our Student Exchange Programs.  If you are not sure if an agreement exists, please contact us at global@uc.edu.

UC operates on the semester calendar, 15 weeks in one semester, running from late August to late December. Students typically earn 3 semester credits or the equivalent of 6 ECTS credits, or roughly 12 credits in the UK and Australian systems.

Students should meet with their home university’s international office to explore the possibility of studying abroad.  We require all students to be nominated by their home institution via email to global@uc.edu at least one month prior to the application deadline.  Partners should  include the student’s legal name, email address, home institution, year of study (i.e. 2nd, 3rd, 4th), and subject of interest (i.e. Engineering, Business) when nominating students. 

The Fall Semester application deadline for this program is April 15th and the Spring Semester deadline is October 15th.

Note: UC will only accept electronic copies of the application and supporting documents in Adobe PDF format.  All documents should be submitted to global@uc.edu.
