Alaska? Hawaii? Maine? Exchange at one of over 200 campuses throughout the United States at in-state tuition rates! As a member of the National Student Exchange Program (NSE), Utah Valley University provides opportunities for full-time undergraduate students to exchange for an academic year or a semester. This does not require a one-to-one exchange.

Can you imagine studying marine biology in Hawaii, or taking theater or art classes in New York, all while maintaining your status as a UVU student? You have the opportunity to expand the boundaries of a university to the Lower 48, Guam, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. Think of the adventure you will have experiencing an entirely new culture and geography!

NSE was founded as a parallel to the study abroad program
