Incoming NSE Students

When do I find out if I get in?

Students who will be coming to Western State Colorado University (Western) on a NSE exchange will be notified of their acceptance by their home NSE coordinator after the annual March conference.  If you are applying after the March conference Western still accepts students to come on Plan A and depending on availability on Plan B.

What do I do once I am accepted through NSE to Western?

Once you are accepted you should be contacted by your home NSE advisor.  You will need to fill out a Placement Acceptance Form (PAF) and send it to Western's NSE advisor, Katie Wheaton (Academic Resource Center, Taylor Hall 302, 970-943-7056).  Once the office receives your PAF we will process you as an incoming NSE student.  You then will be receiving an e-mail from Western's NSE advisor.  This e-mail will detail everything you need to be doing in preparation to coming to Western for the Fall, Spring and/or Summer semesters.  You can begin by requesting an official transcript from your home institution and sending it to:

Western State Colorado University

NSE Coordinator, Katie Wheaton

Taylor Hall 302

600 N. Adams St.

Gunnison, CO 81231

How do I register for classes?

Once you've been accepted to participate in NSE through Western you will receive information about how to register for classes.  Registration will begin in April for the Fall semester and in November for the Spring semester.  You can begin looking through course schedules as soon as they come online.  Call 970-943-7056 to schedule a phone registration appointment with Katie Wheaton.

What are my housing options?

All incoming NSE students must live on campus. The Residence Life Office has many options available on their website.
