Huaping Zhou, president of the Institute of Xuyi Vocational Education in China, and Vincennes University President Chuck Johnson congratulate each other following the signing of academic cooperation agreements. The first student from Xuyi County is planning to enroll at VU soon.

Vincennes University has extensive agreements with international universities especially China to create study and research opportunities for students and faculty. This site contains information about international academic exchange programs, transferral programs, and collaborations with agencies. These programs allow a VU student to study at other institutions completing courses that will count toward VU graduation. The programs also allow international students to study at VU either studying English as a second language or completing courses that will count towards their degree at their home campuses.



As Indiana’s premier transfer institution, VU faculty and staff have earned and established over 300 articulation agreements with other institutions including Purdue University, Indiana University, Ball State University, Indiana State University, and the University of Southern Indiana. Now, new partnership programs with Purdue University could help VU students to save thousands of dollars to get a bachelor degree from Purdue. These programs vary in Agriculture, Engineering, Technology, and Hospitality and Tourism Management. In recent years, with high success rates of transferring to Purdue, VU’s transfer students have acquired a variety of top honors in the programs of Engineering and Agriculture there.




We are currently promoting direct admission program with Purdue University (West lafayette campus) to Chinese students.
