National Student Exchange at WOU
The National Student Exchange Program (NSE) is a low-cost option to attend an out-of-state university for up to one full year. NSE’s mission inspires academic enrichment, personal exploration, and student development by facilitating accessible collegiate study away to universities throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Canada.
Academically-qualified students are given the opportunity to spend up to one year at another school, while paying in-state tuition rates, and maintaining academic progress toward degree requirements. Credits earned during the exchange become part of each students’ home school transcript.
