Participation is a privilege, not a right. As an NSE participant, you are an UNC ambassador at your host institution. We want you to show your Bear pride and make us proud! All of the following requirements must be met to be considered eligible for NSE:

  • Full-time student
  • Minimum GPA: 2.5 (some schools require higher)
  • Good academic standing (no academic holds or probation)
  • 24 UNC credits by the time of exchange (cannot go during freshman year)
  • Willingness to explore the US and/or Canada
  • Desire to have a great time!

NOTE: these requirements must be met at the time of application and exchange. If your GPA for the term preceding exchange falls below a 2.5, your exchange may be cancelled by UNC even though your overall GPA remains at a cumulative 2.5 or greater.

The full list of eligibility requirements is listed at NSE.org under "Exchange Policies."
