Amidst uncertainty for global mobility, NSE can provide your students with study away experiences closer to home. The National Student Exchange consortium includes public and private institutions, AAU, Carnegie Research universities, COPLAC, and Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) including HBCUs, HSI, and AANIPISI. We invite membership from baccalaureate-granting colleges and universities in the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Institutions must be regionally accredited or provincially recognized and committed to providing the quality of education and service practiced by NSE members. Annual membership is US$900. See our Annual Report.
