Last year, the Office of International Affairs started the Exchange Partner Program, which pairs undergraduate degree-seeking students with incoming exchange students to help them feel at home on our campus and promote cross-cultural understanding at Ohio State.

Exchange students differ from the majority of our international students because they study at Ohio State for only a semester or one academic year and are not seeking a degree.
