National Student Exchange (NSE)

If studying abroad in another country is not right for you, but you still have the desire to experience something different for a semester or year, you may be eligible to experience new academic, geographic, cultural, social, and political settings in another state! You can encounter another environment and resources while making progress toward your degree. Every year Chico State students join over 2500 others who exchange within the United States, and some Canadian provinces, at approximately 200 member institutions of the National Student Exchange. Forty-five states, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands have member institutions. During this exchange participants retain their full student status at CSU, Chico. To ensure continuity, all required courses for general education, majors or minors must be approved by the respective office and grades will then transfer back to your Chico academic record. Because Chico State is a member of NSE, Chico State participants may pay either CSU, Chico resident fees or pay the host institution resident fees/tuition. This decision, however, is made by the host institution. In either case, non-resident fees/tuition is waived by the host institution.

Applications and more information on NSE are available at CSU, Chico Academic Advising Programs.
