National Student Exchange is a network of nearly 200 U.S. and Canadian colleges and universities. Students can go on exchange for a semester or a year to another school in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Canada! NSE is AFFORDABLE! Most students pay U of M tuition while on exchange and most financial aid applies.
There are many reasons to participate in NSE:
Study at a more diverse school (there are many Historically Black Colleges and Universities as well as Latino Serving Institutions that participate).
Live in a different geographic location (like Hawaii, Maine, US Virgin Islands, Alaska, and many places in between!)
Gain access to different courses and faculty at another school. You can choose from approximately 550 majors/minors!
Evaluate a school you might attend later for graduate studies.
Research another job market and network or look for jobs there.
Pursue internship opportunities outside of Minnesota.
Pursue language study (improve your Spanish at a school in Puerto Rico or work on your French at a school in Quebec!)
Grow personally, academically, and professionally!
Applications to participate in NSE during the 2011/2012 school year are due before February 11th, 2011. (If you miss this deadline, go and talk to us in 240 Appleby Hall as many schools will still have openings.)
