Study Abroad FAQs
While you would typically take a FIU class with a FIU professor during a study abroad program, international exchange requires enrollment at a partner university to earn credit. Oftentimes, you must speak the language of the destination country in order to participate in an international exchange program.
Many of the FIU study abroad programs allow participants to pay in-state tuition rates, while students participating in an international exchange program would pay their regular tuition rate.
