UCSC Domestic Exchanges

The UCSC Domestic Exchange programs offer students an opportunity to enhance their academic majors—or investigate other fields of study—while experiencing a year or a term in a different educational environment. The experience also provides students with another perspective—an expansion of social, cultural, economic, and political horizons.
