Study Abroad

The California State University, Northridge’s (CSUN) International & Exchange Student Center (IESC) provides students with the possibility to participate in one of CSUN’s university-affiliated exchange programs, namely the California State University International Programs and the Campus Based Exchange Programs. The IESC also provides support to alumni who are interested in applying to the China Scholarship Program and the Fulbright Program.

COVID-19 UPDATE: CSUN students applying for study abroad and/or exchange should be aware that all future plans will be contingent upon CSU travel restrictions and health advisories at that time. The International and Exchange Student Center will relay any decisions that might impact program participation as updates become available. Students are encouraged to continue planning and preparing for their study abroad/exchange experience, as the IESC will continue to work with students on all possible options if any program changes do occur.

For more information about the programs offered through the IESC, please sign up for an information session.
