Exchange Students


Through its Office of International Programs, Whittier College hosts a growing number of exchange students who come to campus to study for a semester or academic year, from the United States and many countries around the world.

About 12 miles outside of downtown Los Angeles, one of the world’s truly global cities,  Whittier has one of the most diverse student body populations among small liberal arts colleges and our exchange students contribute to this diversity.

Once admitted to Whittier, exchange students are fully integrated into the academic and social life of the College, not separated in special classes or residence halls.

Whether you are interested in applying to become an exchange student or have already been accepted for an exchange here at Whittier, we invite you to learn more about us.
