What is the National Student Exchange?

The National Student Exchange (NSE), a service within the Career Development Center, provides opportunities for you, as an undergraduate, to study for up to one calendar year at another NSE member college or university and pay in-state tuition. NSE is a "study away" experience including all U.S. states, Canada, Guam, Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico, and fits into university initiatives for globalization and diversity. The NSE embodies the overall mission of Utah Valley University by providing meaningful engagement opportunities for its students. NSE participants have found their exchanges culturally enriching, academically rewarding, and one of the most significant experiences of their undergraduate education.
