International Exchange Programs

Exchanges are considered one of the most affordable ways for students to have a study abroad experience. This is because students accepted into the reciprocal exchange program pay the same tuition & fees for Texas A&M University-Kingsville as they would if they took classes on-campus! By paying the tuition & fees for the courses taken abroad to our university also allows the application of any awarded financial aid and/or scholarships towards their semester balance. 

Exchange programs also one of the most independent and dimmers ways to study abroad. Students will have the unique opportunity of living and learning right along side students from the host country as well as other international exchange students from across the globe. Available for a semester or an academic year, exchanges are ideal for independent and proactive students with a flexible mindset are best for this new experience.

Texas A&M University-Kingsville has cultivated relationships with numerous international universities to establish partnerships that support the reciprocal student exchange program. To view the host institutions with available exchange programs, please visit our International Agreements webpage for more information.  

Application Process 

TAMUK students interested in attending an exchange program with one of the university's partnered international institutions will need to complete the application process prior to being registered into an exchange program.

To initiate this process, please review the International Student Exchange Program's Beginning Steps Handout for TAMUK Students for more detailed information.  

Course Registration 

Confirmed students in an exchange program will begin the registration process for the specific placeholder courses directly with our office. Students will be charged regular tuition and fees based on the amount of credits they enroll in the placeholder course. Being enrolled in the placeholder course indicates you are still a Texas A&M University-Kingsville students who is abroad for that given term. It also allows students to still have access to their financial aid and scholarships.

Course registration will not be complete until all necessary documentation has been submitted to the Office of Global Engagement (OGE) for processing.
