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 offers students the ability to study-away at another university in 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.
