The University offers students a variety of international exchange opportunities through Cal State Fullerton's bi-lateral exchange programs or International Programs.
You are not eligible to participate as an inbound exchange student. California legislation does not allow students with dual U.S. citizenship to use foreign passports for an international exchange program. Please review the California State University Chancellor's Office Executive Order No. 605 (PDF) to learn more.
Note: If you are a Cal State Fullerton Student interested in outbound exchange opportunities, please view our most up-to-date list of CSUF Bilateral Exchange Programs and CSUIP programs, and talk to an advisor to learn more about the CSUF student exchange process.

Before arriving to the University, you are responsible for arranging your housing. The International Housing website can facilitate. For their assistance and more information on finding housing please visit our Housing website. You can already apply for housing after you have started your CSUF exchange program application.
In order to meet health insurance requirements for international students, Cal State Fullerton requires all students to purchase the Aetna Student Health Plan provided by JCB Insurance Solutions. You should purchase insurance only after your acceptance has been confirmed and you have received a CSUF Campus-wide Identification (CWID). Insurance is mandatory and no substitutes will be accepted; you may not be able to register for classes without purchasing your health insurance.
Program participants must show proof of available funds for support for the entire length of the exchange program. Please review our estimated budget for the spring 2020 semester, fall 2020 semester and academic year 2020-2021. Costs will be updated for spring 2021 semester exchange applicants.
