Students participating on Reciprocal Exchange Programs earn UTA resident credit, and grades are recorded as regular letter grades. Students pay tuition to UTA, while housing and other related costs are paid directly to the host institution abroad. Reciprocal programs are UTA financial aid eligible. Students are registered in a study abroad course labeled EXCH, and the course number will reflect the level of the course and number of credit hours approved by the advisor on the Course Approval Form (Example: EXCH 1491.001). Students are charged regular UTA tuition for EXCH courses.
