NSE allows you to study at another school in the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, or the US Virgin Islands for a summer, semester, or year! Most students pay U of M tuition, receive financial aid, and earn credits towards their degree! And international students are welcome to participate!

Sign up for an Info Session.

There are nearly 170 schools to choose from. You can study at schools from HAWAII to MAINE, from FLORIDA to ALASKA, and nearly every state in between. And don’t forget the United States’ territories of Guam, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands as well as several schools in Canada!

Visit the complete list of NSE campuses


WHY CONSIDER National Student Exchange?

  • Broaden your personal and educational perspectives.
  • Take courses not available at the U of M.
  • NSE is very affordable! Most students continue to pay U of M tuition and receive their financial aid while on exchange. In some cases, you’ll pay in-state tuition to your host campus.
  • Easily transfer the credits you earn on exchange back to the U of M.
  • Be immersed in another language, such as a French-speaking school in Quebec or a Spanish-speaking school in Puerto Rico.
  • Study at an HBCU (Historically Black College or University).
  • Have an adventure!

FEBRUARY 21st, 2018 is the priority application deadline for the summer 2018, fall 2018, AND spring 2019.  LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED A DEADLINE EXTENSION.

  1. Visit the U of M’s NSE website.
