National Student Exchange

 Study here, study there. Would you like to enroll in classes at the University of Hawaii at Manoa? How about taking classes at the University of Georgia? Why not study at University of Massachusetts at Boston and spend a semester living in Boston?

If these experiences sound fun and fulfilling, you may be a candidate to participate in the National Student Exchange program. Along with more than 170 other colleges and universities, WSU participates in a program that allows students to study a semester or a year at another participating university. Students can live in a different area and experience an entirely new campus environment while continuing to pay WSU tuition and working towards a WSU degree.

Just a few of the participating colleges and universities are:

  • Boise State University
  • California State University, Northridge
  • Florida International University
  • Iowa State University
  • Grambling State University
  • Montana State University
  • Portland State University
  • Stony Brook University
  • University of Arizona
  • University of Connecticut
  • University of Guam
  • University of Hawaii at Manoa
  • University of Kentucky
  • University of Missouri, St. Louis
  • University of Northern Colorado
  • University of South Carolina
  • University of the Virgin Islands at St. Thomas
  • University of Wyoming
