Exchange at LSU

Exchange Programs

LSU is proud to regularly welcome exchange students to our campus. An exchange program at LSU broadens your global horizons with LSU's world-class faculty and immerses you in Louisiana's rich culture. An exchange also allows you to earn course credit at your home university, continuing your degree program while you visit LSU for a semester or academic year. 

If you're interested in coming to LSU as a short-term exchange student, you'll need to connect with your home university first to discuss the application process; they will be your initial point of contact to start your exchange journey!

This page provides information for students coming to LSU for short-term exchange. If you want to apply to LSU for a full degree program, please see our admissions page. If you are a current LSU student and want to exchange to another university, please see our study abroad resources


Life at LSU

We look forward to welcoming you to LSU's vibrant campus community! Once you arrive on campus, our Global Engagement team will welcome you with an orientation program. The resources below provide more information about this program, as well as life at LSU.


Be sure to stay in touch with your home university; since they are your degree-granting institution, they will have the most up-to-date information about transferring your course credits, managing visa paperwork, and completing your exchange. 

However, we're also here to help in any way we can! Please feel free to contact our teams or to come visit our offices
