West Chester offers a superb Music Department, as well a Theater and Arts. There are also many opportunities for student involvement in student organizations.
Campus Location - West Chester is a suburban college town located 25 miles southeast of Philadelphia. It is within a short train or car ride journey to Washington, D.C. and New York City.
Helpful Information - Prefer students to live on campus. You will become more involved in campus life. Scheduling of classes gets difficult and there are more class time opportunities if close to campus. Since you cannot register for classes until the non-degree registration opens, scheduling for some popular majors is difficult. Please try to be flexible and have some Gen Ed classes in your request for classes.
Art and Music Majors need to get in touch with Dept. Chair as these classes may require review or auditionUndergraduate Majors Open to NSE Students

Host campuses award aid to eligible 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 eligible 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.
