National Student Exchange

Want to experience life from another point of view?

Want to experience studying abroad without travelling internationally?

The solution is the National Student Exchange.

The University of Texas-Pan America is now a proud member of the National Student Exchange program which facilitates studying abroad at one of nearly 200 member colleges or universities in:

  • United States
  • Canada
  • Guam
  • Puerto Rico
  • The U.S. Virgin Island

What makes this special?

Apart from the reward of seeing new places, making new friends, taking new courses it opens you to variety of options. Interested course or academic option not offered at UTPA then travel to another member college or university for a single term or academic year.

Cost: believe it or not may be the same as UTPA but this doesn’t apply to all schools.
