National Student Exchange (NSE)
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
