California State University San Marcos has exchange agreements with universities abroad that allow its students to attend those universities for a semester or academic year and earn resident credit toward graduation. CSU San Marcos students pay only their state university fee to participate in these exchange programs.
Most exchanges are university-wide and allow students in any major to attend a partner university. However, some agreements are specific to a particular major, such as business administration. Currently, CSU San Marcos has the following exchange programs for undergraduate students:
Rikkyo University (Business only)
CETYS Universidad (Mexicali, Tijuana, Ensenada)**Currently Suspended Due to Department of State Warning Issued 11/20/12**
University of Zurich (Political Science Only)
If you are a CSU San Marcos student interested in studying at one of these universities, you learn more about exchange opportunities from the Study Abroad Advisor in the Office of Global Education, Craven Hall 3200.
If you are a student at a university that has an exchange agreement with CSU San Marcos or receives students from the CSU International Programs, please contact your international education office to determine whether you are eligible for an exchange.
