UW-Stevens Point is joining the National Student Exchange (NSE)!   

We have become part of a consortium of nearly 200 colleges and universities in the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Through NSE, UW-Stevens Point students will be able to spend a year, or a semester, at another university while paying UW-Stevens Point tuition and accessing their financial aid and scholarships. This makes the experience VERY affordable.
NSE offers study opportunities at diverse university settings and provides access to a wide array of courses and programs; field experiences, co-op, and internship options; and resident assistant, honors, and study abroad opportunities of its member campuses.

Work completed while on exchange at the host campus is brought back to UW-Stevens Point and credited to the student's degree program. UW-Stevens Point has a coordinating office (International Programs / IP) which interacts on behalf of incoming and outgoing students with other member campuses and with various departments here on campus.

The values that guide NSE in meeting the diverse needs of students, coordinators, and member institutions are: excellence in our performance, sensitivity, respect, cooperation, and service to member institutions and their students.
Applications are available now.  The first application deadline will be December 1, 2014 for students wishing to spend semester of year in the NSE from the fall of the 2015/16 academic year.  (Application Deadline Extended Until December 19, 2014!)
Here is a factsheet on the program: NSE Factsheet Color.pdf

Students often ask about working while doing a semester abroad. In general, that is not possible. However, if you wish to investigate this on your own here is a good place to start.

In addition, for future international employment, contacting the UWSP Career Services Office is a good idea:
