An exchange program is when there is an agreement between two universities for a fixed number of students to exchange places for a semester or a year. Students pay their home institution’s tuition fees. Places are limited and in the case of popular destinations, the selection process may be competitive.
Please note that AUB has no summer exchange programs, although it has many recommended summer study abroad programs.
In an exchange program each student pays tuition at his or her home university. In other words, students pay the usual AUB tuition for a full semester's worth of courses at the host university. Students who are on financial aid at AUB will still benefit from it if they attend an exchange program. While students pay tuition to AUB they will pay any housing or activity fees charged by the Host University.
