To be eligible, you must be a full-time undergraduate student with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 and must maintain a 2.5 or higher in the term preceding your term of exchange. You must be in good academic, behavioral, and financial standing with your home university. See the NSE site for more eligibility requirements.
When do I apply?
Applications are due mid-February. If you are planning to apply for NSE, meet with the NSE coordinator to discuss the process and your options. NSE information becomes available in the ACE Office room 5, Student Center, during the fall semester for the coming year.
How long is the exchange program?
Students can choose if they would like to go for a semester or a year. Some universities are on a different academic calendar than the University of Minnesota, Morris. Be aware of this as you consider how long you would like to be on an exchange.
What happens to my financial aid?
You are eligible for financial aid while participating in NSE. If you go under Plan B, you will receive your aid through the University of Minnesota, Morris. If you go under Plan A, you will request aid through your host campus.
What is the difference between Plan A and Plan B?
Plan A means you pay the in-state tuition and fees at your host campus. Plan B means that you continue to pay your normal tuition and fees at your home campus.
