National Student Exchange
"Having the opportunity to participate in the National Student Exchange was an experience of a lifetime. While being on a beautiful island, I was able to not only take courses that pertained to my Marketing major, but also courses unique to the University of Hawaii. I would recommend NSE to any student who has a heart for exploring and is looking to learn outside their comfort zone."

What is the National Student Exchange?
The National Student Exchange (NSE) is a consortium of over 170 universities in the United States and Canada. The NSE was established in 1968 and has had more than 120,000 students participate in exchanges. Students exchange for a semester, academic year or summer. In order to participate, students must meet the following requirements:
- Minimum of a 2.5 GPA
- Complete at least 1 academic term before applying
- Be in good standing on home campus
How does it work?
Students can choose to participate in the National Student Exchange through Plan A or Plan B. In Plan A, the student temporarily transfers to a host university and pays resident tuition and fees there, as well as living expenses. While federal financial aid applies, OSU-specific scholarships do not. All credit will be awarded as transfer credit. In Plan B, the student remains enrolled at Oklahoma State University while studying at a host university. The student pays tuition and fees at OSU, just as if he or she were here, but all housing, meals and other costs will be paid at the host university. Most OSU scholarships and financial aid will apply as usual on Plan B.
