National Student Exchange

What is it?

The National Student Exchange (NSE) allows students an opportunity to enhance their educational experience by studying at 200 accredited universities within the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. 

NSE allows for a tuition reciprocity system. This system allows for students to attend their host institution by paying either the in-state tuition/fees of their host intuition or the normal tuition and fees of their home campus. Work completed while on exchange at the host campus is brought back to the home institution and credited to the student’s degree.

Participating Schools

As mentioned on the home page, NSE has nearly 200 schools within its network that students can exchange with. The schools are located in all 50 U.S. States, Guam, Puerto Rico and Canada. For more information on the schools that are available to exchange to within this academic year visit the NSE website.

How to apply?

Students must complete the Education Abroad Advising Request before working with an Education Abroad coordinator for program placement. The Advising Request collects information on your academic, professional, and personal goals and needs to find the perfect program for you.

Financial Options

When Studying with the National Student Exchange offers two financial options for the program. It is up to the student and the coordinator to decide which is best for student in the program.

Host Payment: With Host Payment, you are able to pay your host campus instate tuition and fees directly.

Home Payment: With Home Payment, you pay the tuition and fees you would normally pay to your institution.
