If your campus is not an NSE member, you may want to bring the program to the attention of your campus administrators in offices such as study abroad, honors programs, student success centers, academic advising, student services, or student government. NSE is open to accredited, four-year colleges and universities in the United States and Canada. Membership information is available at the Prospective Member site.
