National Student Exchange (NSE) is a premier network of 160 colleges and universities offering collegiate study away to 2,000 students annually throughout the United States, Canada, and U.S. Territories of Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands. NSE campuses range in enrollment from 600 to more than 50,000 students. Review your options at

Please note that you must apply first through this website for Gustavus approval to participate. Only after Gustavus approval is determined will you complete the NSE application.

Why NSE?
  • Spend a semester studying and living in Canada, our neighbor to the north! This is a great way to experience a study away exchange in another country while staying relatively close to home and saving on travel costs.
  • Try out a particular field of study or a specialization within your major field that is not regularly a part of the curriculum at Gustavus. (Note: This can be helpful for students considering graduate school.)
  • Try living in a different kind of environment (e.g., an urban area or a coastal city) to explore options that may help you make future decisions when looking for a job or a graduate program.
  • Experience different perspectives among people in your main fields of interest by experiencing the courses offered by three or four or five professors from another institution.
  • For students with advanced proficiency in French, take advantage of the opportunity to study in a French-immersion context without traveling to Europe or Africa.

  • The priority deadline for all terms (fall, spring, or academic year) is February 15. Students who complete applications by this deadline will be handled at the NSE Placements conference in early March and have the best chance of getting their first- or second-choice placement.
  • Post-conference placements are possible, and Gustavus will continue accepting applications as late as:
    • May 1 for fall semester or academic-year placements.
    • September 15 for spring semester placements.
Gustavus Notes:
Note that Gustavus requires junior class standing by the start of your NSE exchange semester. First-year students and sophomores are not eligible to participate.

Exchange Model:
Note that this is an exchange program. In the exchange model, participating Gustavus students enroll directly in courses offered by a partner college or university located abroad or elsewhere in the US. In these programs, there is less direct support for participating students when compared to programs run by Gustavus or by partner organizations with US staff members and offices. The model requires some extra effort on the student's part, to navigate an unfamiliar institution and its systems, but the rewards are demonstrably greater (research shows this), as students who complete such programs experience the most immersive form of study away.
