Eastern is a member of the National Student Exchange (NSE). Full-time students may apply to study, for one semester or one year, at over 170 member colleges or universities in the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico & U.S. Virgin Islands. Students pay tuition and some fees to Eastern while paying room, board, and other fees to the host institution. Students are usually permitted to participate only in their sophomore or junior years, but exceptions are occasionally made in the case of first-semester seniors. Priority applications are generally due in mid-February for all exchanges taking place in the following academic year. Some spring semester applications may be considered until mid-October.
The NSE program provides students with educational experiences not available at Eastern, and the opportunity to become better acquainted with other parts of the country. Students accepted into the program receive equivalent credit at Eastern for satisfactorily completed study. All courses appear on the student’s Eastern transcript, including F-graded courses, if any. Students must have their faculty advisor’s approval before registering for courses. NSE host institution credits are calculated in a student’s grade point average at Eastern.
