National Student Exchange

The National Student Exchange (NSE) program allows you to study at one of nearly 200 institutions throughout the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Small liberal arts colleges, universities in urban settings, and Spanish-speaking universities are among the many exchange options available to students.

NSE offers unique and exciting opportunities to challenge yourself, enhance your academic portfolio, and establish new connections. In addition, participation in the NSE program gives you a distinct advantage with potential employers who regard studying away as a demonstration of adaptability and willingness to try new things.
Exchange through NSE can be tailored to fit your academic, social, and financial needs. You will have the option of paying in-state tuition and fees at your host institution (NSE Plan A) or UI tuition and fees (NSE Plan B). While most students elect to participate in the NSE program for an entire academic year, it is possible to attend an institution for a single semester.
Meet new people and experience life from a different point of view in the setting of your choosing. Unsure of where you want to go? Applicants can select up to five institutions of interest in order of personal preference. Over 80% of applicants who submit the necessary forms before the priority deadline are placed at their first choice.

Interested in participating in National Student Exchange? Email an intern, stop by the International Programs Office 901 Paradise Creek Street LLC Bldg. #3 Moscow, ID 83844-1250, or visit www.nse.org to learn more.

Important dates:

  • Deadline for spring priority placement: Oct. 15
  • Deadline for fall/academic year priority placement: Feb. 20
Applications may be accepted after the priority deadline. Contact the NSE Coordinator if you would like to apply after the priority deadline to determine site availability.
