Student Exchange

The Faculty Resource Network has established a student exchange program for outstanding undergraduates between New York University and three historically black and two Hispanic-serving colleges: Morehouse College, Spelman College, Xavier University of Louisiana, University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras, and University of the Sacred Heart in Puerto Rico.

New York University students who are accepted into the exchange program will spend a semester of full-time study at one of the participating institutions listed above.

The program will be offered for the spring semester of 2013. Participating students will reside in on-campus housing facilities and participate in honors program activities. NYU students can satisfy major and other degree requirements while studying at one of the host colleges by receiving prior written approval from their academic advisor.

Application deadline for Spring 2013 is October 15, 2012. Applicants will receive a decision on or around November 15, 2012.
