The National Student Exchange (NSE) offers opportunities for students to broaden their educational experience through exchange programs with nearly 200 universities across the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Through NSE, students may exchange to another member institution for a semester or academic year and pay that universityís in-state tuition. Students coordinate with their college registrar on course selection and credit transferability. Students should discuss their choice of courses with their advisor. Students must have at least sophomore standing and a 2.5 GPA at the time of the exchange. Students receiving federally funded financial aid at UA can expect to receive similar aid from the host institution. With nearly 200 participating institutions and with a 97 percent placement rate, students can generally find a location to meet both academic and personal objectives; however, a studentís first choice of a host school is not guaranteed.

For further information you may go to the University of Alabama NSE website at You may also call our NSE Coordinator at (205) 348-6114 or come by the Office of Student Involvement and Leadership at 355 Ferguson Center. The deadline for applications for each academic year (beginning with the fall semester) is February 1.
