National Student Exchange

The National Student Exchange program offers domestic exchange opportunities for matriculated, full time, undergraduate students.

Noteworthy considerations are:

  • Participating students are charged in-state tuition rates, either through their home or host campus
  • The period of exchange can be one semester, or an entire academic year
  • Consider nearly 200 member universities in the US, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands ( introductory information can be found on the "Students" page at (
  • Grades, as well as credits, for completed course work will transfer back to the student's home campus
