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.
We are now using a new appointment scheduling system for current UNH students. To schedule an appointment with the UNH NSE Coordinator:
Don't forget: We have temporarily relocated to 315 Kendall Hall while Hood House is being renovated. When you arrive for an appointment, please swipe your UNH ID card in room 317. Thank you!
Please Note: UNH Exchange to UC Santa Cruz and the NHCUC State Exchange Program are separate programs, but both are managed by the Study Away USA office. The application process, timeline, and fees are the same as those for the National Student Exchange program; all UNH exchange policies and eligibility requirements apply.
NSE applications are now available! Click on the tab "Application" on the left, then click on "Forms."
The UNH Priority Application Deadline for Fall '18 & Spring '19 exchanges is February 28, 2018. Completed applications must be dropped off and reviewed in Kendall Hall.
