NSE Domestic Programs

National Student Exchange (NSE)

Study on another campus in the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands while paying the same tuition as you would studying at NDSU. You may also study abroad through NSE where you pay the host tuition and fees, such as Hawaii. Study for a single semester or academic year at one of 200 NSE participating colleges and universities. You can also chose to participate in both NSE and study abroad programs during your time at NDSU. Applications for NSE are due March 1 for study during the upcoming fall, academic year, and spring semesters. Apply now for NSE in the US and NSE in Canada!
