Study Abroad

The National Student Exchange (NSE) facilitates the exchange of students between universities in the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Like going on a study abroad program, you're able to study for a semester or academic year at one of the 200 participating universities. With options in every U.S. state and beyond, NSE offers you the opportunity to explore a different academic and social experience as a college student.
