Is Another Country Too Far? Study In Another State!

Do you want to study somewhere else for a semester or year? National Student Exchange is an agreement between almost 200 colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Vigin Islands. which allows students an opportunity to study at another campus while maintaining their enrollment status at their home campus. They avoid out-of-state tuition and can apply financial aid toward their exchange. Students cite academic diversification, the chance to travel, experiencing different geographic and cultural settings, personal growth and becoming more independent as reasons for participating in NSE. NSE is a valuable way to travel and study while working toward a degree.
