Encourage your students to study away with the National Student Exchange

Students studying at computers.

Faculty are asked to encourage  their students who may be interested in an enhancing study away experience with the National Student Exchange at one of 200 accredited institutions within the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

NSE provides an opportunity for students to explore a new area and assess the feasibility of living there for a future program of study or for work. Through NSE students have the ability to enrich your personal and educational experiences, become more independent, immerse yourself in a new and different environment, take courses that may not be available at WVU, acquire new life skills, explore new areas of study, break out of your comfort zone, search for graduate schools or employment opportunities and experience life from a different point of view.

To apply, or for more information, email the Division of Student Life - NSE Coordinator ,, to set up an initial meeting.

For more information visit the WVU National Student Exchange page on the Division of Student Life website.
