Online Education Abroad Programs: Partner Schools

Participating in a virtual exchange with a KSU partner school means you would take courses through the host institution, but pay KSU tuition and fee rates. Other fees (such as application fees) may apply -- ask your Program Coordinator for details.

Online Education Abroad Programs: Affiliate Providers

These organizations have options of various lengths, ranging between a few weeks to a full semester. With an affiliate program, you pay tuition and any program fees directly to the provider. See the providers' individual websites (linked below) for more details.

Financial Aid & Scholarships

Most of our students use some form of financial aid towards their program. Courses are eligible for aid as long as they satisfy a degree requirement (Major, general education, elective). We recommend reaching out to the KSU Financial Aid Office with any questions about your personal aid package and how it will apply to the courses you plan to take. Other scholarships are also available. You can start your search by taking a look at our page, here.
