Program offering

  • Semester/year-long programs offer CSUMB students the chance to study abroad at one of our many partner universities for one semester or one academic year. Students going on a semester/year-long exchange pay their regular tuition to CSUMB and pay accommodation and meals to their host university. In a few circumstances, students must pay tuition, accommodation and meals to the host university

  • Short-term programs offer CSUMB students the opportunity to spend a brief period abroad (1-8 weeks) while earning CSUMB credit. They typically take place in the Summer, Winter or during standard semester breaks. You'll get a "taste" for Education Abroad that will leave you wanting more!
