National Student Exchange:
Costs and Financial Aid
A non-refundable $200 administrative fee is charged to all NSE applicants. Your U of M student account will automatically be billed the $200 administrative fee when you submit your application. This fee is used to support the operation of the NSE program, including services provided to you both before and during your exchange. Remember that this application fee is NON-REFUNDABLE, so be sure you're serious about NSE when you apply.
Tuition and Fees:
There are two tuition plans available through NSE:
Housing and meals are always paid to the host campus. (If you live off-campus, you are also responsible for those costs). Also paid to the host campus, regardless of the tuition payment plan, are fees that are assessed as a condition of enrollment (e.g., application, laboratory, general service, computer, technology, art and photography supplies, etc.). You will also be responsible for the costs you incur for transportation, personal expenses, and sightseeing opportunities.
What about financial aid?
This information is intended for a general audience and does not apply to every U of M student. We strongly encourage you to meet with a financial aid representative to learn more about your specific financial aid situation. Contact OneStop to schedule an appointment with a financial aid representative.
Students who participate in National Student Exchange are eligible for most forms of financial aid. The tuition plan of your exchange determines the source of financial aid funding:
