UNH NSE Application & Placement Process
- Attend one of our upcoming NSE Info Sessions OR stop by the UNH National Student Exchange office, 106 Hood House, to obtain an NSE Student Handbook, or visit www.nse.org to search the NSE Campus Profiles. Search by major or areas of interest, region, or campus size, too.
- Research & select five or six campuses that meet your academic and personal goals. Remember that UNH is Plan B only, so your list should include schools with Plan B "OPEN" or "UNEVEN". UNH students are only permitted to list one "1:1" school on their final NSE Application.
- Look through the Campus Profiles, Campus Details, official websites, and course catalogs of your top choices, concentrating on courses you might need for your major or minor. If they are not available, ask yourself if you could spend a semester away without taking major or minor courses, and still graduate on time. The key to a successful exchange is FLEXIBILITY. If there are courses you absolutely must take, maybe this isn't the best time to study away.
- Make an appointment with the UNH NSE exchange coordinator to discuss your campus choices and goals for exchange.
- Download and complete the UNH Study Away Eligibility Form, and submit it to the Office of Conduct and Mediation, Hitchcock Hall.
- Complete the UNH NSE Application including all signatures, and enclose your full UNH unofficial transcript (including fall grades), and short personal essay.
- Submit your completed application in person, with the $200.00 non-refundable application fee (cash, or check payable to "UNH") on or before February 22, 2013 at 4:00pm. Late applications may be submitted after consultation with the NSE Coordinator.
- Applicants are only offered one placement: The NSE Coordinator tries for the first choice and if that is not available, she continues down your list of schools in the priority they are listed. Placements are not guaranteed, and are determined by many factors at each HOST campus, such as: their outgoing numbers, class availability, housing, and other factors. Applicants should work closely with the UNH NSE Coordinator to review past placement statistics.
- Students will be notified of their exchange site by Spring Break, and will meet with the NSE Coordinator shortly thereafter to offically accept the placement and begin the necessary paperwork for participating in National Student Exchange.
