Program Description:
This is a one semester exchange opportunity for PhilaU graduate students enrolled in the MSID program.  MSID students must complete one semester of the program at PhilaU before they are eligible to exchange.  Students may exchange during the second or third semester in the four-semester program.

Students must complete the PhilaU Study Abroad online application in order to participate in the program and have their credits from Tongji University transfer back to PhilaU.  Students must complete all required application materials by the deadline noted on their application.  To begin your application, click "Apply Now" above.

Students will pay PhilaU tuition to participate in the program.  Housing fees are determined by Tongji University, but will be billed through the PhilaU Student Accounts Office.  PhilaU Financial Aid can be applied.  Additional fees include the PhilaU Study Abroad Program fee ($800), international medical insurance ($42/mo abroad), round trip airfare, meals, and personal expenses (travel, entertainment, etc.).

Students should speak with the MSID program director, Professor Tod Corlett, regarding the courses you will take at Tongji University and how those credits will be factored into your degree requirements with PhilaU.

Note:  Space in this program is limited, as we must maintain a 1 to 1 exchange ratio with Tongji University.
