BILATERAL EXCHANGE PROGRAMS

Bilateral exchange programs offer the abroad experience to Mason students for
the same cost as their Mason tuition while room and board is paid to the host institution. In a bilateral exchange program the student will travel independently and live with other international students. Students must be at least a second semester sophomore (45 semester credits) at the time of departure and have a minimum 2.5 GPA to qualify for most programs. Students may study for a semester or a whole academic year, earning 12-16 transfer credits per semester.

DIRECT ENROLLMENT PROGRAMS

These programs allow students to attend various overseas institutions. Program costs for direct enrollment programs vary and are dependent upon tuition and location. Mason students enroll as visiting international students at the host institution, earning 12 to 16 transfer credits per semester OR 6 transfer credits during the summer (international summer school programs). They are ideal for more mature and independent students seeing as no Mason faculty member accompanies students during a direct enrollment program. Courses are available in many different disciplines.

FACULTY-LED PROGRAMS

These popular programs are led by Mason faculty and cover a variety of topics. Short-term programs are considered an effective way to obtain international experience, especially by students who work, or have additional responsibilities that limit the amount of time they can spend abroad. Almost all winter break and most summer programs are faculty-led.
