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!

  • CSU International Programs (CSUIP) offers students the chance to study away for a full academic year at any global partner of the California State University

  • National Student Exchange (NSE) is perfect if you'd like to spend some of your college experience beyond the bay, experiencing life in another part of the country. A CSUMB student can study anywhere in the USA and its territories (Hawaii, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands) and in some Canadian cities for up to two semesters.

  • The Education Abroad Virtual International Passport (VIP) Program is an online experience that connects you with international opportunities and infuses your educational experience with a global foundation. Just as in a traditional Education Abroad program, you’ll take courses from instructors who are experts in the field and often are on the ground in the location you are learning about.
