National Student Exchange (NSE)
1080 Hixson-Lied Student Success Center (515) 294-6479

Since 1968, National Student Exchange has offered students a domestic alternative to study abroad. What began with three campuses exchanging seven students is now 190 universities placing 4000 students a year. Iowa State University is pleased to offer exchanges in this program.

Since its founding, more than 80,000 students have participated in NSE. The National Student Exchange was founded as a counterpart to study abroad programs, recognizing that not every student is seeking a study opportunity outside the United States. NSE offers low-cost options for ISU students to study out-of-state, at culturally diverse campuses, with program compatibility to our campus.

Features of the National Student Exchange include:

• Access to additional courses and programs
• Exchange among university honors programs
• Multicultural opportunities
• Resident assistant exchange options
• Credits applied toward degree
• Tuition reciprocity across the United States
Exchange features and requirements:
• NSE campuses in 48 states, three U.S. territories, and six Canadian provinces
• Duration of exchange can range from one semester to one calendar year
• Exchanges can occur in different academic and calendar years
• Students must be full-time during application and exchange
• GPA of 2.5 on a 4.00 scale required
