Semester Exchange Opportunities

Lamar University students are able to spend a semester or an entire academic year abroad through our international partner institutions. On semester exchange, students are enrolled at Lamar University, but take their classes abroad, usually in English. There are several opportunities that allow students to take a language abroad or take their classes in another language if they are fluent.

For additional information on exchange programs or to find out how to apply, stop by the Office of Study Abroad in the John Gray Center, Herman Iles Building A, Room 108A.
