Semester and Academic Year Exchange Program - Incoming Students

About the Program
Through the exchange program, international students can study at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) for a semester or an academic year, and pay the same tuition fees as they would at their home institution.  In order for an international student to apply to the exchange program with CSUF, they must first be nominated by their home institution.

California State University, Fullerton is a major regional university in a vital, flourishing area that includes Orange County, metropolitan Los Angeles and the expanding Inland Empire. The beautiful, 241-acre campus is set in Fullerton in north Orange County, about 25 miles from downtown Los Angeles and about 21 miles from nearby beaches.

Cal State Fullerton has more than 39,000 students and approximately 4,100 full- and part-time faculty and staff members. The University offers 110 degree programs in eight colleges.

Accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, CSUF is fourth in the nation for the number of bachelor's degrees awarded to minority students and first in California for the number of bachelor's degrees awarded to Hispanics.

In 1957, Cal State Fullerton became the 12th state college in California to be authorized by the Legislature as a degree-granting institution. The following year, a site was designated for the campus to be established in northeast Fullerton. The property was purchased in 1959. This is the same year that Dr. William B. Langsforf was appointed as the founding president of the school.

Today, the Cal State Fullerton main campus encompasses 110 permanent buildings, including student housing for 1,980 residents and the 585-seat Gastronome dining complex, and a picturesque 26-acre Arboretum.

The campus also features the Student Recreation Center, a two-story 95,000-square-foot facility located west of Titan Gym that offers a rock climbing wall, work-out room, basketball court, indoor track, outside pool, and spaces for individual training and scheduled fitness classes.

The Performing Arts Center complex provides state-of-the-art facilities for audiences and performers alike, as well as instructional facilities for students.

The Steven G. Mihaylo Hall is home to the Mihaylo College of Business and Economics – the largest accredited business school in the state and nationally recognized for accreditation in both its business and accounting programs.

The University is one of 23 campuses in the California State University system. Since the campus opened, CSUF has awarded degrees to more than 215,000 graduates. Many are leaders in business, government, education and the arts.
