Student Exchange Programs
Foreign Students Attending Benedict College Under the Exchange Program
The selection process of students coming to the U.S. to participate in the exchange program at Benedict is conducted by the foreign institution. Foreign Students must fill out a BC Foreign Student Exchange Application (FSEA), (available online at ), a personal statement stating the reason for choosing Benedict as their study abroad destination, a copy of their passport, and a copy of their transcripts. The documents must be sent to the OIP for review and admission. The FSEA includes the courses selected by the student in conjunction with their foreign advisors which will transfer to the student’s program of study at the home institution. Once the student is admitted at BC, the OIP will issue an I-20 or a DS 2019 form for visa purposes. Foreign students must register as full-time students at Benedict and must take a full course load (minimum 12 credits), and are entitled to room and board and to enjoy the same privileges as Benedict students.
