Exchange Programs

Spend a summer, full semester, or year abroad!

Students looking for a more intensive or long-term experience abroad should consider participating on an exchange program to one of Northern Michigan’s partner universities.  A full semester, summer, or year abroad program allows students to enroll in coursework and attend a university in another country for at least one academic term, living and learning with local and other international students.  A full semester, summer, or year abroad is a great way to continue improving language skills, learning about the culture and customs of a country, and provides student with the chance to live abroad independently with the help and support of great university staff.

NMU applications for Spring 2019 semester abroad are generally due by October 15th!

NMU applications for Fall 2019 semester and academic year abroad are generally due by March 15th!

If you have questions about a particular program due dates, please ask! Sometimes due dates are extended.
