Best of both worlds

If international travel is not your interest, you don’t have to cross the ocean to have enriching cultural and academic opportunities. UW-Eau Claire is among 200 universities that participate in the National Student Exchange Program (NSE). This unique exchange program allows Blugolds to study for a semester at another university while still paying UWEC tuition. Locations are available in 49 states, pretty much a guarantee that there will be a match for your interests and academic needs.
