What is NSE – National Student Exchange
The National Student Exchange (NSE) Program provides accessible collegiate study away
to undergraduate students at member colleges and universities in the United States,
Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Students participate in NSE
to access new courses, search for graduate schools or future employment, acquire life
skills, and broaden their personal and educational perspectives.

the host campus.
