The New York/Paris Exchange Program offers all full-time CUNY students -undergraduates and graduates of all disciplines- the opportunity to study at one of the Universities of Paris for one semester or a full academic year. The Program also offers full-time faculty the chance to exchange teaching posts for the same period of time.
Depending upon their proficiency in French, class standing, and the subjects they wish to study, students are placed at one of the participating French schools. Credits earned for courses taken there are applicable to a CUNY degree.
Among the disciplines offered at the Universities of Paris are art and art history; business and management; cinema and theatre; computer science; dance; economics; engineering and technology; history; linguistics; literature; political science; psychology; sociology; translation; urban studies; women's studies.
MICEFA, the organization that administers the Program on the Paris side, helps students to find housing of two varieties: au pair positions, in which a student lives with a Parisian family and exchanges 15 hours of service each week to the family in the form of child care or tutoring and/or English conversation for a room and two meals a day; or furnished apartments that can be shared with other students with a cost per student of approximately $500 a month.
Students will go on a number of excursions outside of Paris to sites of cultural interest, such as hartres, Giverny, and Mont-St. Michel. These trips are free to CUNY students.

The Program's Fall semester runs from September 1-January 30; the Spring semester runs from February 1-June 20. The deadline for those applying for the Fall program is April 1st; for those applying to go in the Spring, the deadline is November 1st.
