Semester Exchange Program

Active Program

Founded in 1964, the Semester Exchange Program offers undergraduates the opportunity to study at the partner institution for one semester. Since its inception over 300 students have taken advantage of this exchange program.

Applications:  Exchanges are for one semester, during the regular fall or spring semesters, and the deadlines to apply take place early each semester.  Interested students should therefore speak with their academic advisors and contact the SSE representative on their home campus early in the semester to discuss the application process and requirements.  The student’s home institution determines whether a student is eligible to apply and must endorse a student’s application before it can be considered by the partner institution.

Applications for the Student Semester Exchange Program are due to the partner institution by February 1 (for Fall Exchange) and October 1 (for Spring Exchange.  Although a partner may decide to extend an application deadline, students are strongly encouraged to plan ahead and apply as early as possible.  Students may seek permission to apply a full cycle early to assist in their efforts to plan accordingly.  Further information is available through the BTP offices on either campus.

Financial Aid: Brown calculates and processes Semester Exchange financial aid awards for participating Tougaloo and Brown students.  Brown is committed to fully funding tuition and required fees for Tougaloo students on Semester Exchange at Brown each academic year.  Financial aid for other costs of attendance (such as campus housing, meal plan, travel, and other personal expenses) depends on demonstrated student financial need.

Transfer credits for courses successfully completed during an exchange semester are subject to the policies and approval processes of the home institution
