Fall semester: September to January*
Spring semester: February to late June
When selecting a semester exchange program, students should take note of academic calendars that differ significantly from the University of Minnesota. Consider potential conflicts such as holidays, family events, graduation ceremonies, and summer jobs/internships early in the selection process.
*Students are able to make special arrangements for final exams in cases where fall semester final exams conflict with U of M spring semester classes.
There are no on campus accommodations available for exchange students. However, students can easily look for an off-campus apartment through real estate agents and resources at Lingnan. Volunteer buddies in Lingnan will assist exchange students on looking for accommodations.
For more information on housing visit Lingnan University’s International Housing page.
