Exchange Program


CSULB is a vibrant, diverse public university committed to building connections with students, scholars, and partners around the world. The International Programs team strengthens these connections through our numerous activities. We welcome thousands of students, scholars, and professionals to our campus each year for a range of degree and non-degree programs, and we offer a wealth of learning and research opportunities for CSULB students and faculty abroad. We are committed to working together to address the complex challenges facing the world today.


Direct Exchange Program:

California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) bilateral exchange programs and California State University (CSU) Systemwide exchange programs are available to students without U.S. citizenship attending foreign universities with established exchange agreements.  If you are uncertain if your university is an exchange partner, please contact your university’s exchange advisor.If your university does not have an exchange agreement with the CSU or CSULB, you might consider attending CSULB for one or two semesters as a visiting student through the Study Abroad @ the Beach program.

CSU Systemwide Exchange Program:

The CSU systemwide program is run by the CSU Office of the Chancellor staff, not CSULB staff. The deadline dates for students who wish to apply to CSULB through the systemwide CSU International Programs Exchange Program are often much earlier. Students should contact their Exchange Coordinators for exact deadline dates and instructions.

Application forms and detailed program information are available from your university’s exchange advisor. There is no application fee. See your home campus advisor for a copy of the CSU Systemwide applicaiton.

Students: Please address all questions regarding the exchange program to your home campus advisors until you are offcially accepted (or at least officially nominated).
