National Student Exchange

Established in 1968, the National Student Exchange program has provided over 105,000 students with the opportunity to attend school elsewhere in the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto- Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. This program allows exchange of students for whom an overseas experience is not appropriate or affordable. There are nearly 200 accredited baccalaureate-granting colleges and universities. These member institutions allow students to attend them but still pay the tuition of Colorado Mesa University or the In- state cost of the location to which they are exchanging.

National Student Exchange allows students to embark on a life-changing adventure which has proved to challenge their thinking, expand their education, broaden their personal experiences, and encourage them to take risks and reap the rewards of doing so.
