Nomination and Application Process for Exchange Students and Free-Movers

Nominations for exchange students may be done through this form. Free-movers/visiting students do not need to be nominated by their home universities.

  • An email confirmation will be sent when the application is received.

Course registration:

While the final course schedule is available approximately two weeks before each semester begins, we will require that once you receive your acceptance letter, you submit a tentative learning agreement (LA) completed with the course information of the previous academic year. You will be registered in the courses indicated on your LA, and as soon as the course schedule is published, you will receive it so as to determine if your courses have any overlaps. Since attendance is required at UTDT, you will need to make changes to your schedule should there be any overlapping courses. Changes will be only allowed during the add/drop period, which takes place during the first two weeks of the semester for undergraduate students and the first week of each module for graduate students. After these periods, any courses in which the student is enrolled will appear on the transcript to be sent to the home university.

Please take into consideration that many universities are closed when the second semester´s add/drop period at UTDT takes place (early August). Since no exceptions will be made to the add/period, please make sure to come to UTDT with more pre-approved courses than you would need to take so that you have options should you have to change your course registration.

Student fee:

All in-person students will be required to pay a one-time UTDT student fee of USD 50. This non-refundable fee will be charged upon acceptance and must be paid before the orientation program.
