International Exchange Students

Exchange students are those students who are currently enrolled in a degree program at the university level at one of Fordham's exchange partners abroad. Fordham will only consider exchange student applications from those students selected by their home institutions for participation in approved exchange with Fordham Unviersity. Please consult with your home school's international exchange office on how to apply internally for such programs. Fordham University has limited exchange partners and not all foreign institutions qualify for student exchange with Fordham.
