There are two tuition payment plans utilized by NSE: Plan A and Plan B.
Students on exchange with Plan A pay in-state (resident) tuition to the host campus (e.g. Fort Lewis students on Plan A pay tuition to the exchange school).
Students on exchange with Plan B pay tuition to their home campus (e.g. Fort Lewis students on Plan B pay tuition to FLC).
Students may apply for exchange under Plan A and/or Plan B. The payment plan (A or B) is the determined by the host campus' NSE Coordinator (before or during the spring NSE Conference). Determination is based on the host campus' policies (and economic considerations).
NSE and the Native American Tuition Waiver:
Under Plan A, qualifying Native American and Native Alaskan students from other NSE campuses ARE ELIGIBLE for the Native American Tuition Waiver while on exchange at Fort Lewis.
Under Plan B, qualifying Native American and Native Alaskan students from Fort Lewis can utilize the Native American Tuition Waiver and pay no additional tuition while on exchange.
Please contact the FLC-NSE coordinator for details on tuition-free exchange for all qualified Native American and Native Alaskan students.
On both Plan A and Plan B, fees assessed as a condition of enrollment (e.g., laboratory courses, computer and technology courses, art supplies, etc.) are paid to the host campus.
Housing and Meals
Room and meal costs on both Plan A and Plan B are paid to your host campus. Please note: Students participating in the NSE are highly encouraged to live in on-campus housing.
Students in the NSE program are responsible for all additional costs including transportation to the host campus, additional travel opportunities, and all personal expenses while on exchange.
