10-minute tutorial of how to get started with searching for international programs and how to navigate this site efficiently.

Students may apply for partner programs and SDSU Exchange, ISEP Exchange/Direct, and partner programs on Aztecs Abroad. 

Due to the disparate impact of the COVID-19 worldwide, students are encouraged to remain flexible and have a contingency plan just in case programs are postponed, cancelled, and/or changed to virtual formats at later date. Students should not book any accommodations or flights until they have received confirmation regarding their onsite program.
