Interested Students

There are so many reasons to consider NSE!  Here are just a few:

  • Tuition reciprocity across the United States. You pay UNCW's tuition while enjoying the courses and culture of another school and state. 
  • Exchange among more than 90 honors programs.
  • Resident Assistant exchanges. You get to study at another campus, while working as an RA. This often comes with free room & board and, depending on the campus, a nice monthly/term stipend. 
  • Countless multicultural opportunities. NSE offers access to many Hispanic, historically black, and urban campuses.  Think they don't do things differently in Montana, New York, Alaska, or Arizona?  Think again!
  • Guaranteed access to federal financial aid for eligible participants.
  • Credits applied to UNCW degree program. Credits will transfer back to UNCW, and we will work with you to make sure that wherever you go, you will be able to work towards your degree and stay on track. 
  • Exchange for a single semester or a full year.  While we do often recommend that you exchange for a full year, you have the option to make the exchange fit with your needs.
