J-1 International Exchange STUDENTS

Education Abroad facilitates the admission and enrollment of select J-1 exchange students coming to the United States through the University's established international exchange partnerships.  We are proud to partner with nearly 30 institutions around the world to provide incoming students--nominated by their home institution and supported by FAU Education Abroad and International Services-- the opportunity to engage in cultural and educational exchange at Florida Atlantic University.

Students applying to FAU under an exchange or cooperative agreement can do so through our online application portal after being nominated to FAU. After FAU Education Abroad receives your nomination, you will receive an email with an application link and next steps. Be sure to keep your username and password in a secure location. The application is separated into two parts. Students must complete Part 1 before moving to Part 2.
