    University Exchange

    University Exchange means taking classes at a university abroad, but paying OU tuition and fees at your normal rate. These programs are highly immersive and ideal for independent learners and students with financial aid tuition waivers.

    Transfer Credit

    Approved Transfer Credit programs are programs sponsored by specific affiliate providers or universities abroad with which the University of Oklahoma has an active agreement and where you pay directly to that specific university or provider. Financial aid, excluding tuition waivers, can be applied to this program type if they are listed in the program search engine.

    Selection Criteria

    Students are selected for study abroad programs based on the following criteria: grade point average, personal essay, financial aid requirements, academic standing, and letters of recommendation. For certain study abroad destinations with limited availability, the selection process is quite competitive. All students who qualify for study abroad are offered a location for study, but because of the competitive process, some may not be admitted to the school or destination that they most prefer.
