National Student Exchange (NSE)
Eastern is a member of the National Student Exchange (NSE) consortium.  Full-time students may apply to study, for one semester or one year, at one of the nearly 200 member colleges or universities in the United States and Canada.  Students pay tuition and fees to Eastern while paying room and board and normally charged fees to the host institution.  The program is open to sophomores and juniors.  Exceptions are occasionally made in the case of first semester seniors.  Students must have a minimum 2.5 grade point average (GPA) and pay a $125 NSE fee for administrative expenses.  All NSE applications must be delivered to the Intercultural Center with the $125 check made out to ECSU.  Financial aid is awarded through the home institution.

The NSE program provides students with the opportunity to take advantage of educational experiences not available at Eastern and to become better acquainted with another region of the country.  Students accepted into the program will receive equivalent credit and grades at Eastern for study satisfactorily completed.  This means that all courses will appear on the student's Eastern transcript.  Students must have their faculty advisor's approval before registering for courses.  NSE host institution credits are calculated in a student's GPA at Eastern.

Applications for 2011-2012 exchange will be available beginning in November, 2010. The deadline for applications is mid-February, 2011 for all exchanges taking place in both the fall and spring semesters of the following year.

Additional information is available at the NSE website at www.nse.org.
