Carnegie Mellon seeks opportunities to partner with institutions abroad to exchange students, faculty, and researchers. These programs are based on faculty relationships between the two institutions and have been evaluated for academic compatibility.
This is a reciprocal exchange program as the Carnegie Mellon Pittsburgh campus also receives students from CMU-Qatar. This allows Carnegie Mellon students at both campuses the opportunity to build friendships both prior to and during the study abroad experience, providing a true cultural exchange.
Important Billing Information
Carnegie Mellon students participating in these programs continue to pay tuition (billed at the junior/3rd-year level) directly to their home Carnegie Mellon campus; and receive, in most cases, the same financial aid package. Students are responsible for paying all other fees (such as room and board) directly to the abroad campus, as well as airfare to and from the program.
Students applying for this particular University Exchange must complete a two-part process:
Step 1 – complete a Carnegie Mellon University Exchange Application (click "Apply Now" below)
Once accepted on exchange from both sides:
Step 2 – finalize the process with CMU-Qatar, http://www.qatar.cmu.edu/231/campus-exchange-pittsburgh-to-doha
Before students begin a University Exchange application, we recommend they discuss their interests with a member of our study abroad staff.
