Student Exchange - Outbound Students
At Fisher, you have the opportunity to represent Fisher College of Business and OSU as an International Exchange Student with one of many highly-ranked exchange partners around the world. While Exchange is one of the most affordable ways to study internationally, the Office of International Affairs also has other study abroad programs that are available to all OSU students.
If you are planning to participate in a Fisher Student Exchange, please note that the application process typically begins ONE ACADEMIC YEAR prior to your intended program. (December 31st [undergraduate] and January 20 [graduate] deadline for 2013-2014 academic year). Applications will be recived online.
Before applying, we suggest you update your resume, write a statement of intent relating how Student Exchange will complement your education and career objectives, and request one letter of recommendation from an OSU (preferably Fisher) faculty member. This letter should state that you would be a good representative of Fisher in the International Exchange Program and are academically prepared to study abroad.
You should first meet with your Fisher academic advisor to confirm you are eligible for exchange, and your list of courses needed before your graduation. This information will guide you as you select your Host Institution. Please be aware that certain restrictions are in place, e.g. you are not permitted to take an introductory class for your major while abroad. Please discuss these kinds of issues with your academic advisor.
NOTICE: In countries under a current Department of State Travel Warning, undergraduate students cannot use scholarship awards for study abroad programs and/or individual international projects outside of venues approved by Ohio State. Graduate and professional students may petition the Study Abroad Health and Safety Committee for approval a minimum of three months prior to proposed travel. Countries currently on Department of State Travel Warning can be viewed at: www.travel.state.gov For further information on the policy and/or the petition process, please contact Grace Johnson (email@example.com) at the Office of International Affairs.
Your application will not be considered complete until ALL documents have been submitted. You will be charged a $150 non- refundable application fee after accepted into the program.
Finally, you must send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm receipt of your application.
NOTICE TO OSU INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: All students holding a U.S. visa, who are participating in International Programs-CIBER programs must schedule and attend an appointment to meet with an Office of International Affairs International Student Services advisor, to complete the “OIA Immigration form” (link on the top right side). Students who do not complete this meeting by February 1st will not be permitted into their program and will forfeit their deposit.
