National Student Exchange Program
The National Student Exchange (NSE) Program offers University students an opportunity to explore a different geographical and cultural environment, broadening their academic experience. Students can apply as early as their freshman year to participate in an exchange during their sophomore, junior, or senior year. These exchanges create extensive opportunities for personal and academic growth and give the satisfaction of achievement available from the combined resources of more than 180 state universities and colleges throughout the United States. NSE-participating schools are diverse institutions offering insightful experiences. Students are able to gain access to a variety of courses, one-of-a-kind programs, field studies and internships, and explore graduate programs, professional schools, and career options.
