Important update – Summer 2021

As FIU continues to monitor the spread and control of COVID-19 across the globe, the FIU Travel Committee (TC) has carefully reviewed the feasibility of international student mobility programs coordinated by the Office of Education Abroad for the Summer 2021 semester. Due to the continued unpredictability of the pandemic’s impact locally, nationally and globally, and out of the concern for the safety of our students and faculty directors, FIU is canceling all in-person outbound international faculty-led, exchange and third-party programs on behalf of the university for Summer 2021, including Summer B. For up-to-date and accurate information on FIU travel, visit FIU repopulation.

International Student Exchange

With the International Student Exchange (ISE) Program, you can attend any one of our partner schools throughout the world. The ISE offers you true immersion since you’ll be living and studying in your host country for the Fall or Spring semester, or both! You pay your FIU tuition for ISE, which means any scholarships or financial aid that you receive can go towards your study abroad experience. To learn more, visit International Student Exchange.

Other study abroad opportunities

Students can choose to participate in a non-FIU or outside study abroad program. These third-party programs are not offered by FIU. It could mean directly enrolling in a foreign institution, participating in a program through a different U.S. university, or participating in a 3rd party provider program. If you are interested in participating in a third-party program, you must apply through the Office of Study Abroad to have your program reviewed for approval to accept/apply your credits at FIU.
