its founding in 1888, Utah State University has evolved from a small-town college tucked away in the Northern Utah mountains to a thriving research university respected around the world. Students can choose from an array of academic and social opportunities at a university known throughout the world for its intellectual and technological leadership. USU is just minutes from two mountain ranges and within a half-day's drive of six national parks, including Yellowstone and Arches. It provides big-school opportunities with a small-school feel. 

USU is particularly strong in the fields of atmospheric and space sciences, computer science, education, engineering, natural resources (including drylands management, fisheries and wildlife, and forest resources), nutrition and food sciences and Western American history, literature and folklore. USU is home to the Space Dynamics Laboratory involved in significant research in astronomy, atmospheric physics, satellites and rockets. Research opportunities may be available through the undergraduate research program


There are various types of housing on campus with different styles of room layouts. Most students have a roommate, but for an extra cost (and if there is availability), students can request a single room.

Many exchange students stay in Jones Hall, known as the Global Village. This is a living learning community with additional cultural activities than would occur in a regular residence hall. Jones Hall is set up in an apartment style, with each apartment consisting of three rooms housing two students each, a shared bathroom and a shower, and a shared kitchen and living room space. Laundry facilities are available and university housing is located on campus.

Housing is covered by USU for all ISEP students, though students still need to apply. USU will cover the cost of a shared room in Jones Hall whether students live in Jones Hall or elsewhere; any additional cost above the Jones Hall cost is the student's responsibility. 

All exchange students living on campus will be responsible for a security deposit. Some of that deposit may be refundable at the end of your program from Housing if your room is left in the same condition as you found it in when you moved in. 

Students can remain in housing for vacation periods or temporary housing will be available. For calendar year (January – December) students who wish to stay on campus during the summer, they will need to apply for and pay for summer housing, as well as re-apply for the fall semester housing. 


A stipend will be placed on student accounts as an unlimited residential meal plan. Students can keep this meal plan, adjust it to a different plan, or remove it completely to receive a refund (making sure to keep at least the minimum meal plan that is required for your housing if there is one). 

*Calendar Year students are not eligible for ISEP housing or meal benefits over the summer break

Other Academic Conditions

Enrollment in some courses in aviation, business, computer science, education, engineering and art may be limited. Engineering students should have at least a B-grade average, and may need to provide course descriptions in English of previous engineering coursework to demonstrate they meet engineering pre-requisites. 

Certain departments on Utah State University’s campus have instituted differential tuition. This is an extra cost to the base tuition for particular courses. The details for affected subject areas can be found on page 5 of this document. Exchange students will be covered for up to six credits worth of differential tuition for courses in any department that charges the differential tuition. Students who take more than six credits worth of any courses that charge differential tuition will be responsible for the differential tuition over six credits. 

Students taking courses in areas such as lab sciences, engineering, business, arts and language may also be responsible for paying additional special course fees, noted in the online semester class list, that are not covered by ISEP benefits.

Certain syllabi may be available in advance to prospective students; contact your ISEP Student Advisor.
