Mission of NSE  

National Student Exchange inspires academic enrichment, personal exploration, and student development by facilitating accessible collegiate study away among member colleges and universities throughout the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and U.S Virgin Islands.  

History of NSE

National Student Exchange was founded in 1968, with charter members University of Alabama, University of Montana, and Illinois State University. It was a time when our nation and students on college campuses were searching to understand identity, history, and how differences fit into the idea of American culture. What began with those three institutions exchanging seven students has grown into a premier network of colleges and universities exchanging 2,000 students annually throughout the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. More than 118,000 students have taken advantage of collegiate study away through NSE and new adventures begin daily.
