National Student Exchange

The National Student Exchange (NSE) is a program for undergraduate exchange within the United States and Canada. Instead of crossing oceans, NSE students cross state, regional, provincial, and cultural borders.

Through the National Student Exchange, students may study for up to one academic year at another location while paying regular IPFW tuition and fees. With nearly 200 colleges and universities from which to choose, students are able to find a university with just the right combination of courses, facilities, and environment to meet academic and personal needs and interests.

Are you interested in this fantastic opportunity? Our on-campus information sessions for the 2014-15 academic year have ended, but you can always make an appointment with Alison Rynearson, our NSE coordinators, to ask questions and receive an application.
