Study Away and National Student Exchange

Study Away

Dakota State University has study away options both domestically and abroad.  National Student Exchange (NSE) is open to students enrolled at nearly 200 member colleges and universities throughout the US, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. NSE provides an exciting opportunity for students to enroll in specialized courses or unique academic programs which may not be available at Dakota State University. Whether it’s to investigate a graduate school, seek future employment, or to live in a different area and access new courses, NSE provides the avenue for students to experience new cultures and become more independent and resourceful. (

The Magellan Exchange is a non-profit consortium of universities worldwide providing an opportunity for students to study abroad at an affordable cost.  Participating in the student exchange program is the ideal way to learn about another culture and country.  Students may study for a semester or academic year in Austria, Australia, Belgium, Costa Rica, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Mexico, the Netherlands, South Korea, and Span. 

DSU faculty also lead short-term programs abroad for credit. Whether you want to study photography in London, Paris, and Edinburgh, learn about business and marketing in Panama, or study the art of Paris, Florence, and Rome, we may have just the short-term program you’re looking for.

A $50 administrative charge will be assessed for all short term faculty led programs, and a $100 administrative charge for semester or year-long exchanges.
