Paul's Tip of the Week: Domestic Exchange

Have you ever thought about studying at a different school or college? Want a new experience and new opportunities that you just cannot get at UMass? Don't really want to leave the country to do all of this? Our Domestic Exchange program could be a great fit for you!

One of the many perks of going to UMass Amherst is our National Student Exchange program where you can study at another college/university in the country for a semester or a year. With over 180 universities and colleges in 48 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, Domestic Exchange gives you an opportunity to explore a new place, culture, and education.

My friend Erika spent last Spring at the University of New Mexico on Domestic Exchange. She loved it. Here's what she had to say about it:

"Taking a semester away from UMass and traveling to New Mexico gave me a chance to experience a whole different culture, right in my own country. I really fell in love with the beautiful surroundings, made great friends from around the U.S., and got to take advantage of the excellent anthropology department at UNM Albuquerque. I'd recommend Domestic Exchange to anyone who wants a fresh perspective on their country and their education, and to anyone looking for an amazing adventure!"

So, what are you waiting for? Start planning your Domestic Exchange today!

Start exploring schools


attend an info session in 613 Goodell Wednesdays at 4:45 or Thursdays/Fridays at 2:30 to learn more!

It's never a bad idea to start planning early to learn a little bit more about the application process and various deadlines. And remember, something programs like NSE and Study Abroad all have in common is that they check your Dean of Students Office Behavioral Record. Don't forgot to keep up the good behavior!
