University of Hawaii - Manoa

University Information

http://www.manoa.hawaii.edu/international/mix/
UH Mānoa International Exchange (MIX) is one of the many ways the University demonstrates its commitment to international education and understanding. MIX provides an opportunity for UHM undergraduate and graduate students to study overseas and also allows students from our overseas partner universities to study at UHM. An exchange may be for one or two semesters. Participants are registered as full-time students at their home university while on exchange, pay their normal tuition to the home university and do not pay tuition at the host university. They are, however, responsible for travel costs, flight arrangements, housing and meals. The host university provides information on housing options.
