Shenandoah University has partnerships with the University of Winchester in England, Audencia Business School (Nantes, Frances), and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance in London. We are also a member of the International Student Exchange Program (ISEP), which is a global network of 300 universities.
How it works
Our exchange agreements allow students from our partner schools to study at Shenandoah for a semester or year. You pay tuition and fees at your home institution as you normally would, and receive academic credit at your home institution. In general, exchange students are responsible for the cost of their lodging, food, and health insurance while at Shenandoah.
What you should know
You’ve got questions, so we made a guide. Topics covered include:
- Coming to the U.S. on a student visa, program start and end dates, travel.
- Steps to apply for a student visa.
- Tips for maintaining your visa status after you arrive in the U.S.
- Your pre-departure checklist.
- Health insurance requirements, and what to know about healthcare in the U.S.
- On-campus resources
Other things to keep in mind
- Housing on campus is very full. If you plan to live on campus, we recommend applying for housing as soon as you can. (Note: you must be an admitted exchange student to apply for housing.)
- Public transportation in the U.S. is fairly limited outside of major urban areas. The university does provide shuttles to the Washington, D.C. metro area at most breaks, but usually not at the semester break in December. We keep a list of options that may help you if you need to travel at a time where there aren’t campus shuttles.
