Aalto University, Finland

Students participating in a reciprocal exchange program pay all Texas A&M tuition and fees for the duration of the program. Students remain enrolled with full-time student status at Texas A&M while on exchange by registering in the holding course of their college with a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester for undergraduate students or 9 credit hours per semester for graduate students (or per academic college requirement). In this way, a student's Texas A&M financial/scholarship package will apply even though the student is studying at a reciprocal exchange partner institution in another country. Undergraduate students participating on exchange programs are expected to bring back to Texas A&M a minimum of 12 credit hours in Texas A&M course equivalencies for academic work completed at the host university. Graduate level students are expected to bring back a minimum of 9 credit hours (or per academic college requirement). Students should note that course selections at the host institution are not limited to the courses listed in the data base. It is possible to select and register for other courses at the partner institutions after consultation with and approval from your Texas A&M academic advisor/professors. Language requirements and/or other pre-requisites should be considered when selecting other non-approved courses. You can find more information about the participating schools and application process in the following web pages:
