Semester & Academic Year programs
Engineering Exchange Programs
Exchange Programs are semester and academic year opportunities for students to 'swap places' with a student at one of our partner institutions. U of A students pay normal U of A tuition rates based on their residency and college/major but take classes at another school. Students must hold a 3.0 GPA at the time of application and need to be able to demonstrate resiliency, as these programs are highly independent and immersive.
Engineering Students work with Dr. Bryan Hill and their academic advisors to determine the best timing to go abroad based on each students' degree progress and goals. Courses at these partner schools have been pre-approved to work with the Engineering curriculum!

UA Faculty Summer Programs
The Rome Center is the U of A's only international residential study center, offering U of A credit taught by on-site faculty, as well as faculty from Fayetteville.
Why is it great for engineering students?
- You know exactly what credits you are earning
- Complete University core credits to get ahead on your degree program

We also work with affiliated External Program providers, which create even more opportunities for U of A students. Programs vary greatly in length, and students earn transfer credit.
All of the external programs have these different alphabet soup names (e.g., AIFS, CEA, USAC), but they all do the same thing: support our students on study abroad. External program providers usually provide international insurance, arrange housing, enroll student in academic courses, offer cultural activities, etc.
Students who go on an External Program will have two applications:
- a main application with the program provider (e.g., CIMBA, ISA, USAC)
- Deadline: program specific
- a corresponding application in our HogsAbroad portal
- November 1 Deadline for Spring Programs
- April 1 Deadline for Summer, Fall, & AY Programs
Students are eligible to use most (if not all) of their existing aid, as well as apply to additional study abroad scholarships.
