Let Curiosity Be Your Compass with NSE

The National Student Exchange is a consortium of over 160 colleges and universities throughout the United States, US territories, and Canada. Through this academic program, students continue to make progress toward their UNH degree while studying at another fully accredited institution. After a semester or year on exchange, students return to UNH to complete their remaining degree requirements and graduate.

If it is time to expand your curriculum, strike out on your own, explore new interests, study with new faculty, hear different ideas, make new friends, or create new opportunities, then widen your horizons through the National Student Exchange.

Schedule An Appointment

Current UNH & UNH-M students should login to Wildcat Advising and select Study Away USA to schedule an appointment (phone or in person) with the UNH NSE Coordinator, Paula DiNardo.  

Study Away USA has 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.
