Placement at Host Schools

nse 1Most students are placed at the annual National Student Exchange Conference in March.  This is your best opportunity to get your top choice in schools.  This is for placement any time in the upcoming  academic year. Applications for the March placement conference are due mid- February.  After the placement conference, we can still place students on the National Student Exchange.  However, some schools will be filled.  Please see an OIE advisor if you are interested in placement after the March placement conference.

Placement acceptances are made according to the openness of the respective host institutions.  Campuses which list themselves in Campus Profiles as excellent or good will accept all or most qualified applicants. Institutions listed as competitive will accept a few more incoming students than the number of their outgoing applicants who are placed.  Very competitive campuses will accept students only from those campuses at which their own students are placed.
