Each course is equal to 3 USC units, and students enrolled in the program would be expected to complete 4 business courses while abroad.

Housing is NOT provided by the University. However, the Exchange Office will assist students in finding local housing close to campus through on-line resources and a referral service. The Exchange Office also holds a very thorough orientation, in which students are picked up at the airport and shuttled to their hostels, and introduced to their local student “buddy”. During this period, the office will assist you in finding housing.  Housing costs average $200-$350 per month for non-shared accomodation.
