Important Update on Fall 2020 Exchanges

Due to the continuing worldwide situation with COVID-19, LSU has made the decision to cancel all outgoing and incoming international exchanges for Fall 2020.


We recognize the inconvenience and frustration that this decision may cause for many of you, but we believe it's the best choice to keep our students and those of our partnering institutions safe.

If you have been affected by this decision and need assistance or have questions, please contact us at
