National Student Exchange
Salem State's NSE Program
Salem State University students have the option of studying away for one semester or one year through the national student exchange program.
The National Student Exchange (NSE) program is a unique, not-for-profit consortium of nearly 200 accredited, baccalaureate-granting colleges and universities in the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. Being part of this program offers university students an opportunity to explore a different geographical and cultural environment, broadening their academic experience. NSE provides exchange opportunities for the multitude of undergraduate students who meet eligibility and for whom an overseas experience is not appropriate, comfortable or affordable. Students may exchange for one semester or a full academic year.
