Welcome to the National Student Exchange Website for Stony Brook University

nseWelcome to Stony Brook University's National Student Exchange website. National Student Exchange is similar to Study Abroad in many respects. Both programs widen your horizons academically, personally, and socially. You get a chance to study at another campus for a specified period of time and return to your home campus greatly enriched by the opportunities and experiences you enjoyed somewhere else. The major difference between the two programs is that Study Abroad takes you outside the United States and National Student Exchange keeps you in the United States and her territories of Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and participating universities in Canada.

This website cannot answer all your questions about the program, but it does give you basic information. You need to attend an information session to get more details about NSE. There is also a comprehensive NSE brochure that will be distributed at the information sessions for your personal reference.


I'm really glad I chose to do the NSE program because it gave me the advantage of relocating to a different region in the US that is geared toward my career interests. Coming here, I was able to meet and network with people with similar career objectives and interests as me and had even been offered various internships as a result of it. On top of all the new friends I made and the midwest culture I got to learn about, this NSE program was definitely a worthwhile experience all around. I'd recommend it to anyone!
