  • X+Y Degree Program Agreement
  • Strategic Partnership Agreement
  • Student Exchange Agreement

Current Agreements

An explanation of the different types of agreements and information about how to initiate an agreement can be found here: 

How to Establish a New Affiliation or Exchange

Note: International Education is the central repository for exchange agreements and international memoranda of understanding. This hasn't always been the case in the past. If you know of any arrangements that are not included on these lists, please inform our office and we will update our information (; phone: 303-492-7741).

Student Exchange Programs

Student exchange programs are a particular kind of partnership that involves sending and receiving equal numbers of students to and from each exchange partner.

Affiliations via education abroad programs

Education abroad affiliations: CU Boulder also has a number of overseas affiliations through its non-exchange education abroad programs. A list of these host institutions can be found here: Education Abroad Host Institutions. These are universities that CU Boulder students may attend on an education abroad program but with which we do not have formal exchange agreements.

A full list of official CU Boulder education abroad programs, including those not based at a foreign institution, can be found on the Education Abroad programs search.
