National Student Exchange (NSE)

NSE Logo

The National Student Exchange is a study away program much like study abroad.
With NSE you can study away for a semester or for a year. NSE locations encompass nearly 200 colleges and universities in the:
  • United States
  • Canada
  • Guam
  • Puerto Rico
  • U. S. Virgin Islands.

 NSE gives you an opportunity to experience a different area with its unique cultural and academic opportunities. Since NSE's beginning in 1968, more than 100,000 students have had the opportunity to participate in NSE. Our students utilize NSE to:

 ·    broaden their personal and educational perspectives

·         experience new cultures           

·         explore new areas of study

·         learn from different professors

·         access new courses

·         experience personal growth

·         meet new people

·         make new friends

·         live in a different area

·         investigate graduate schools

·         seek future employment 

 Many of our returning students describe NSE as a life-changing experience which has made them more independent, self-confident and resourceful; expanded their risk-taking capabilities; and helped them better define their academic and career objectives. Students who have been on exchange return to our campus with lasting friendships formed with students from all over the country.
 Prior to exchange, we will work with you to guarantee your credits will transfer back to UW-W. Tuition for this exchange will be the same as you pay at UW-W Whitewater. You will pay the host institution for on campus housing. Your selection for participation will be done by our campus. Placements at the host campuses are made by that campus on a space available basis. With placement rates of 97 percent, you can generally find a location to meet both their academic and personal objectives.
 Think about it. Go to, (We are plan B - that means you'll pay UW-W tuition while on the exchange)
Talk with your parents, advisor, and professors about this exciting opportunity. Plan to attend one of our information sessions where we will explain the details of the program, provide brochures, outline application procedures, and answer all of your questions. Please stop by my office for advisement and to pick up a brochure. Applications for the  next year’s exchanges are due by the end of February.

Placement Fee structure: These fees are charged to students simply for bringing their name and placement choices to the placement conference in March. Students are charged whether they are accepted to one of their choices or not as well as if they don't accept a  placement. In addition to these fees, students would pay UW-W tuition on their UW-W account as well as housing costs to the host university. Transportation costs to the host university are out of pocket expenses to the student.
NSE Fees: $150 (non refundable despite placement status)
UWW Fees: $225 (non refunable despite placement status)

 I hope you will take advantage of this opportunity. I look forward to meeting you.
