Financial Aid and Scholarships

National Student Exchange

The National Student Exchange program affords students the opportunity to learn and explore at the same time, while earning college credit.

The National Student Exchange program provides a unique chance to study at one of nearly 200 institutions in the United States, Canada, and U.S. territories up to one year. If you are interested in this program, participation is coordinated through the National Student Exchange Office.

National Student Exchange programs are not offered during the summer sessions unless you are an outgoing student.

Outgoing Students and Fee Payment

The University of South Carolina is a Plan B only school. Outgoing UofSC students will pay tuition and fees to UofSC. Room, meals, and other applicable fees are paid at the host school. For financial aid purposes, students in this program are treated as if they are enrolled at UofSC. You can use all your financial aid at UofSC except Federal Work-Study.

National Student Exchange Financial Aid Checklist

The National Student Exchange office will notify us to prepare your financial aid. 

The financial aid office will need a copy of the Special  Enrollment Request Form. Please submit this electronically through the National Student Exchange Upload Form. Visit our Forms page to select the appropriate year. 

Students will use the normal fee payment process on Self Service Carolina.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
