Programs listed below are Fall term only with the exception of one Germany location and Australia.  Going during Winter or Spring means missing both terms at OSU due to the exchange school being semester-based.  Their Winter/Spring term will begin late February.  Fall terms begin earlier but will wrap up late December so students would only miss Fall term at OSU.
