Find Your NSE Office
Chattanooga, Tennessee is still one the best mid-sized city in America with a growing metropolitan campus (UTC) that is interwoven into all that's happening in the city-from improving public schools to helping plan for new city landscapes, from participating in the art expansion going on in the city to providing student co-ops and interns for the new businesses-like Volkswagen and it subsidiaries who have just moved to town to produce a "new" American car. There's also boating-sail, motor, or kayak on the Tennessee River and its lakes, or you can travel about 35 miles away to whitewater raft or kayak the Ocoee River where the 1996 Olympic kayaking course is still up and flowing. If that's too difficult, you can float quietly down the Hiawassee River through some of the most beautiful countryside south of the Shenandoah Valley. Walk downtown from campus on the "8 mile river walk," or walk across the Walnut bridge.
Campus Location - Chattanooga, with its numerous natural resources, is located in southeast Tennessee easily accessible to Atlanta-120 miles, Nashville-120 miles, Knoxville-109 miles, the Smoky Mountains-145 miles. The campus is located approximately seven blocks from downtown Chattanooga within easy and safe walking distance.

Exchange with Canada - Health Insurance
For Plan A U.S. students, aid is awarded by and disbursed from your host campus. Students apply for federally funded financial aid by using the FAFSA code of their host campus. Host campuses award aid to incoming Plan A students on a first-come, first-served basis as long as funds are available. Ask your home campus NSE coordinator if your campus awards aid to their own outgoing students. If so, do not apply for aid from your host campus.
For eligible Plan A applicants U.S. federal financial aid may be available in the following programs:
For Plan B students, aid is awarded by and disbursed from your home campus.
Regardless of Plan A or Plan B, students exchanging to or from Canada, apply for financial aid at their home campus.
There is a mandatory dinning fee for all students who live in university housing ($675). Incoming exchange students will live in a themed living community "GO GLOBAL" with other international and national exchange students and some of UTC returning exchange students. "Go Global!” allows UTC students to live with and learn from returning UTC international exchange students and new international and national exchange students from all over the world. The community allows students to learn about study abroad opportunities, develop skills in a foreign language, foster appreciation and respect for other cultures, and welcome new international and national exchange students to campus as they learn about UTC, Chattanooga, Tennessee and “The South."
Meal Plans Per Semester
All on campus housing students must pay a minimum meal fee of $675 per semester, but may chose a more comprehensive meal plan, also.
