National Student Exchange

The National Student Exchange program is a consortium of nearly 200 colleges and universities in the United States and extends beyond the borders of the United States to include some Canadian Provinces. Mississippi State University is a member of this program.

The NSE program provides the opportunity for the eligible student to attend a college or university in another state for up to one calendar year without having to pay for the high cost of out-of-state tuition. Students register, pay tuition and fees at Mississippi State University as they usually do; they do not pay tuition and fees at the host campus, but are responsible for room and board.

Mississippi State University students who participate in the National Student Exchange program remain as degree-seeking, registered students at Mississippi State University. Any financial aid that is normally available can be applied to the exchange obligations. Because NSE is an officially approved program of the university, all courses with their respective credit hours and earned grades will be recorded on the Mississippi State University transcript and will be calculated in the GPA.
