Study Abroad

Incoming Exchange Students

Welcome to DU’s Incoming Exchange Student general information site!  We are excited that you are considering DU for your term abroad.  As you get started on this process, we want to help clarify common questions, general requirements, and useful links and contacts to help you in this process.

General Requirements

The Office of International Education (OIE) houses the university’s undergraduate exchange programs.  Applicants interested in studying at DU must be nominated by their home institution, and must be studying at a university with which we have an active exchange partnership.  If you are unsure whether your institution is an exchange partner at DU, or whether you qualify as an exchange candidate, please check with your home international office.

See our general requirements for admissions, information on courses, available departments, housing, insurance, application requirements, and what is included in the exchange in our DU Factsheet. 

The Incoming Exchange Application form is available here.

Applications must be sent from your home international office and only applications with the official approval from that office as part of our exchange agreement will be considered.

Application deadlines:

  • Fall 2017 start—March 15, 2017
  • Winter and/or Spring 2018 start—September 15, 2017

Students must also show Proof of Financial Support as part of their application.  Total estimated funding students must show can be found here. Lund University Law students have a different total estimated funding requirement since they will study at DU for the Law School Semester. Click here for more information on the requirement.

The Center for Academic Advising can help answer questions once you have arrived at DU regarding class registration and organizing class schedules.  Before your arrival, please contact Stephanie Roberts (email above) directly with questions. Please note your academic advisor at your home institution should advise you on the kind of classes you need to stay on track for your graduation

Office of the Registrar

The Office of the Registrar handles all academic records and transcripts for students at DU.  The OIE will automatically request one official transcript at the end of your term at DU to be sent directly to your home institution.  However, should you need any additional copies, you will need to order them directly through the Registrar

Bursar’s Office

Please review the DU Fact Sheet above for information regarding what costs are included in the exchange.  All other costs are the student’s responsibility.  Any of these additional costs that are owed to DU must be paid by the student through the Bursar’s Office
