Even though you have been accepted to UVI for the NSE program, you still need to formally apply to the school. Click here to complete the application.

To be admitted to the University, the following must be submitted:

  • Your UVI application form. Students attending the St. Thomas Campus must send a check or money order for $25 made payable to the University of the Virgin Islands.
  • You must send an OFFICIAL copy of your current academic transcript.

All completed forms and payments must be mailed directly to the NSE Coordinator.

FINANCIAL AID- If you are requesting financial aid and are on Plan A, make sure that you have completed the current year FAFSA. If you have not added UVI to your FAFSA form, please do so immediately. Your financial aid will be disbursed by UVI not your home campus. The Financial Aid Office will request a final transcript to determine your class standing to disburse your financial aid.

  • Plan B students- Your financial aid will be disbursed by your home institution.

HEALTH FORM- Complete the Student Health Form by clicking here. You must submit a copy of your immunization record as well as your lab results. You must have the required immunizations and have these forms on file prior to your arrival on campus. You will not be allowed to move on campus without these documents. The forms are to be sent directly to the NSE Coordinator.

HOUSING- Complete the housing application and mail it to the NSE Coordinator with a $100 housing deposit. Please make money order out to the University of the Virgin Islands.

ORIENTATION- NSE students are required to attend the New and Transfer Student Orientation Program. Orientation schedule is available on at www.uvi.edu
Classes begin the week following Orientation.

NSE ACTIVITY FEE- There is a non-refundable $90 National Student Exchange activity fee for the St. Thomas Campus. The fee is paid to cover the cost of participating in a cultural activity during the semester. Make your check or money order payable to the University of the Virgin Islands. All payments should be mailed directly to Dahlia Stridiron, NSE Coordinator.
There is no activity fee required for the Sheen Campus on St. Croix.

NSE students have been extremely adept in exploring the many cultural offerings that the Virgin Islands have to offer. We look forward to meeting you when you arrive (instructions on how to get here from the airport will be available on the website later). Feel free to email the NSE Coordinators if you have any questions or concerns.
