Exchange Student Applications

The information on this page is specifically for students who are attending UNCP through an exchange agreement with their home universities. These students will attend UNCP for a semester or a year, and the student must be nominated by their home institution or a study abroad consortium in order to participate. All other international students should seek information in the Future Students section of our website or in the Undergraduate or Graduate Admissions Offices.
