The National Student Exchange (NSE) offers opportunities for students to broaden their educational experience through exchange programs with nearly 200 universities across the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Through NSE, students may attend another member institution for a semester or academic year and pay that university's in-state tuition. Students coordinate with their college registrar on course selection and credit transferability. Students should discuss their choice of courses with their advisor. Students must at least have sophomore standing and a 2.5 GPA or higher at the time of the exchange. Students receiving federally funded financial aid at UA can expect to receive similar aid from the host institution. With nearly 200 participating institutions and a 97 percent placement rate, students can generally find a location to meet both academic and personal objectives. However, a student's first choice of a host school is not guaranteed.
For further information, visit our website, call our NSE coordinator at 205-348-3326, or come by the Office of the Dean of Students at 2500 Ferguson Center. The deadline for applications for each academic year (beginning with the fall semester) is February 15.
