Tuition/Study Away Plans

On the NSE website each member school has their own Campus Profile, as a guide to understanding what each campuses payment plans offer.

Host Payment

Fees – Tuition — WOU student pays all RESIDENT tuition and fees of the exchange (HOST) school directly to that campus.

Financial Aid – HOST (exchange) school awards you (WOU student), if eligible, financial aid.

Home Payment

*Fees – Tuition — WOU student pays WOU tuition and fees at their current rate.

Financial Aid – WOU Office of Financial Aid awards you, if eligible, financial aid.

*Course fees, health fee, NSE participation, and other fees may be assessed and required at the host campus, regardless of Home Payment. Visit campus profiles for more information.

Campus Profiles that list Host and Home Payment will send as well as receive qualified student participants under either tuition plan of host or home.  Campus Profiles that list N/A for a tuition plan do not accept students under that tuition plan.
