Non-Degree International Students

For Incoming International Exchange Students

Santa Clara University welcomes non-degree international students to our campus through one of our non-degree international student programs.  These include:  
Exchange - Undergraduate
Visiting International Students
Exchange programs are partnership programs in which a reciprocal number of students from overseas study at SCU and students from SCU study at the university overseas.
Our Visiting International Student Program allows students from pre-approved partner universities to study at SCU on a non-receiprocal fee-paying basis.

For Degree-seeking international students, please visit our international student admissions page.

    "Studying with locals is one of the best benefits of doing a direct exchange and directly enrolling as an international student at a university."

    " While in Cork, I joined the club squash team. This was a great opportunity to learn a new sport and socialize with my classmates and peers. There are many clubs to choose from and there's truly something for everyone, local and international."
