Montana State University

National Student Exchange


The National Student Exchange, a consortium of 190 state-supported colleges and universities, offers students the opportunity to attend another participating institution for a semester or full academic year. By bringing together students from different parts of the country, the exchange encourages participants to broaden themselves academically, socially, and culturally to experience personal growth.

To qualify for participation in the NSE program, a student must 1) be a full-time student, 2) have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5,  3) be a student in good standing academically, financially, and, socially, and 4) have completed at least 24 credits.

Students with Montana residency (in state) are able to enroll at their host institution with the same financial benefits enjoyed by in-state students. Nonresident students (out-of-state) may attend schools that allow them to continue to pay their tuition at Montana State University.
