How to Search

Your greatest academic adventure starts with just a few clicks.

Getting Started


To make sure you find a study abroad program that’s both culturally and academically enriching, we recommend you start with an open mind and use our database’s many search features.

You can search for a program based on location (region, country, city or institution) and by length of term. You can also search by program type, an important factor in matching the program you want with the costs you can afford:

CSU International Programs: These programs are offered by CSU and offer low fees, resident credit and courses designed to meet your Gen Ed and degree requirements.
Cal State Fullerton department programs: These programs are created and managed by a handful of CSUF departments. If one is offered in your major, you’ll pay the same low fees and get the added ease of transfer credit toward your degree.
Non-CSUF programs: These programs provide flexibility to study just about anywhere and anytime, though they will cost more than a CSU- or CSUF-supported program, Also, credits earned in these programs won’t automatically transfer (as they do in CSU/CSUF programs); you may have to jump through a few hoops when you get back, but our office will be happy to help you through that process.
CSUF Reciprocal exchange programs: These programs are student exchange partnerships that allow CSUF students to spend anywhere from a summer up to one year abroad studying at a partner institution. Your credits will transfer directly, and you'll pay the same tuition as you would here, but you'll be responsible for airfare and housing.

Additional Search Features


You can also further customize your search using a variety of filters that may help you find a program you might have never considered, but that is an ideal fit for your academic goals or financial situation.

Some of these additional search options include: Area of study, GPA requirement, financial aid options, language prerequisite, language of instruction, housing options, and class standing.
