You do not need to establish residency in order to participate in the National Student Exchange program. Students will continue to be under their current residency status while they are "studying away" with NSE. Please note: your time as an exchange student with NSE does NOT count toward establishing residency in your host state location. During an NSE exchange you are a visiting student on EXCHANGE and not a residency seeking student. Tuition for incoming NSE students is based on instate tuition with no COF (College Opportunity Fund).

SPRING 2017 REGISTRATION OPENS FOR INCOMING NSE STUDENTS ON 11/02/16 at 8:00am For incoming NSE students to UCCS, please be aware of the following course registration restrictions.

  1. While you are an NSE student, you are NOT eligible to take graduate-level classes. At UCCS, graduate level classes are numbered 5000+.
  2. Courses in the Beth-el College of Nursing and the College of Education are CLOSED to ALL INCOMING NSE students.
  3. Courses within the College of Business are VERY LIMITED to incoming Plan B students. ****Please look under the business tab in this FAQ section for a list of classes.
  4. Courses within the College of Engineering are CLOSED for all incoming Plan B students. Important reminder: ALL INCOMING NSE Students are required to attend the mandatory NSE orientation. It is always the Saturday before the Fall or Spring semester classes begin from 10am to 12PM.

Housing at UCCS is a great opportunity for all incoming students to be more connected with the UCCS community. While living on campus is not a requirement of incoming NSE students, it is highly recommended.

UCCS sits on a high bluff above Colorado Springs. Housing off campus will present a couple of different challenges for an exchange student. If you plan on living on campus, be sure to apply ASAP. Although we have just added a large number of beds, campus housing can be very difficult to get. If you have any questions about UCCS housing, please contact Steven Horner at shorner@uccs.edu, or go to their website at: //www.uccs.edu/residence/.

If you would like information on near-by housing opportunities off campus, please contact Heidi Wardell at hwardell@uccs.edu.

****UCCS does not endorse any off-campus housing organizations, but we try and keep a list of contact information on hand for your reference.
