The UNCG Global Engagement Office administers the Baden-Württemberg/North Carolina Exchange Program on behalf of the UNC System. Established in 1996, this state-to-state exchange program allows students from North Carolina’s 15 public universities and Baden-Württemberg’s nine universities to study at each other’s institutions for one semester or a full year.  

As a participating UNC System student, you will remain enrolled at your home university and pay no additional tuition while earning credits toward your degree. Baden-Württemberg also provides a one-time 700 Euro scholarship for North Carolina students, based on availability of funds.
