Study Away USA Office at UNH Response to COVID-19


The University of New Hampshire has moved to remote learning and services for the remainder of spring semester.  We are still operational & available while students are completing coursework remotely, but our office in Hood House is closed.   We want to stay connected to our NSE family, near and far, and are using a variety of technologies to stay in contact with our students, their families, and our colleagues .  Feel free to reach out to directly  via emailmyWildcat SuccessFaceTime, Zoom, and our new LIVE CHAT feature.  Be well and please stay in touch.

Let Curiosity Be Your Compass with National Student Exchange

Since 1988, the University of New Hampshire has been a proud member of the National Student Exchange, a consortium of over 160 colleges and universities in the United States, US territories, and Canada. Through this academic program, UNH students can spend a semester or full year studying away at another member campus, and continue to make progress toward their UNH degree.  After a semester or year on exchange, students return to UNH to complete their remaining degree requirements and graduate on time.

If it is time to expand your curriculum, branch out, explore new interests, study with new faculty, hear different ideas, make new friends, or create new opportunities, then let curiosity be your compass, with the National Student Exchange.
