Exchange Students

Exchange students enjoying Angel's game

At Cal State Fullerton, we welcome exchange students either through the California State University International Programs & Global Engagement or through Cal State Fullerton's bi-lateral exchange programs with institutions of higher education outside of the U.S.

For Holder of Dual U.S. Citizenship

If you have dual citizenship, one of which is U.S. citizenship, you are not eligible to participate in any exchange programs (either through the California State University's International Programs & Global Engagement or through Cal State Fullerton's bi-lateral exchange agreements).

This is in accordance with the California State University Chancellor's Office Executive Order No. 605 (PDF) which is part of California legislation. It states that U.S. citizens do not qualify for nonresident tuition waiver. You cannot use the passport based on your other citizenship to enter the U.S. since you have an American passport based on U.S. citizenship.
