Exchange Programs

Seton Hall University offers exchange programs with universities across the globe. Exchange programs not only offer students a great opportunity to spend time at a foreign university, but also the opportunity to truly experience and become immersed in a new culture. Most of these programs also give students the chance to live with local families or other international students. Participants in the exchange programs live the study abroad experience while paying Seton Hall tuition, which can be funded by currently held scholarships, loans and grants.
