2015 international student orientation.

Full-time undergraduate SVA students may participate in the International Exchange Program at institutions that have exchange agreements with SVA, depending upon their major, academic standing and departmental approval.


To learn more about the program, freshman and sophomores are encouraged to attend information sessions held throughout the spring semester every year. 

SVA has exchange student agreements with a variety of schools around the world.

Outgoing students must meet initial eligibility requirements, gain acceptance to a partner institution and gain academic approval to be considered exchange students. 


Students then can schedule individual meetings using this form with Melinda Richardson, Manager of SVA Global to discuss their plans and complete the application process. Melinda can be reached at exchange@sva.edu and the SVA Global office is located within Admissions at 342 East 24th Street.
