Why Not See the World?
Through Rensselaer-affiliated exchanges, students pay regular Rensselaer tuition, and financial aid applies. An affiliated exchange can be ideal insofar as Rensselaer students take courses that will likely transfer back to campus as Rensselaer courses, not simply electives. For example, if you take EBC 2003-Management Information Systems at Universiteit Maastricht in the Netherlands, it transfers back to Rensselaer as MGMT 4140-Computer Information Systems. Please note that among other considerations, eligibility begins with a 3.0 minimum GPA (3.3 for UCL and DTU) and second-semester sophomore status; some programs require junior standing. Those schools with asterisks* accept business/management students only, and several hold AACSB accreditation.
