Individual Exchange Programs
Formal exchange programs are arranged by the University to facilitate the students’ completion of financial, academic and administrative requirements of the host university. Courses taken at partner exchange universities are evaluated with grades in addition to credit granted by UST.
Financial transactions are treated as if the student were still taking classes at UST. UST students taking courses at a sister exchange university can also use financial aid allotted for their studies at UST.
Students within 36 hours of graduation can take courses at an exchange program and still be considered “in residence.”
Individual Non-Exchange Programs
If a student wishes to study at an institution other than one of UST’s formal exchange partners, students can consult with the study abroad director to discuss alternatives. Study outside of extant sister exchange agreements can be arranged through third parties such as other universities or consortiums.
Approved courses taken in non-exchange programs will transfer as credits, not grades. Utilization of financial aid in such cases may be extremely limited. Students within 36 hours of graduation should not expect courses taken in a non-exchange program to transfer towards their remaining hours to graduation.
