National Student Exchange (NSE)
Full Academic Year or Single Semester, Fall or Spring
What is the National Student Exchange (NSE)?
NSE is a consortium of universities across the U.S. and Canada that provides students
the opportunity to study for one semester or one year at another school while continuing as degree seekers at UWSP!
NOT all U.S. universities are members. As a "Plan B" member of the consortium, however, UWSP gives students access to schools in almost every state, in Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands.
Features of the National Student Exchange include:
NSE is a great opportunity to expand your education. Participants gain access to:
· additional courses and programs not available at UW-Stevens Point
· other university's honors programs
· regional diversity and urban experience!
$500 NSE Fee is required to be accepted into the program in addition to $50 application fee.
NSE participants pay UW-Stevens Point tuition and no base tuition to their host university. The host university will work with UW-Stevens Point students on housing and board options as well as ancillary expenses such as course surcharges, books, club fees etc.
Students receiving financial aid are eligible to apply aid to their NSE semester or year away expenses.
