Midwest Student Exchange Program


The Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP) is an opportunity for students from Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan*, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota and Ohio to attend the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh for a reduced tuition rate.

UW Oshkosh does not have ANY restrictions for MSEP students: ALL academic programs are available and there is NO LIMIT on the number of students who can receive the special tuition rate.

*Due to Michigan’s withdrawal from the Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP) effective Summer ’21, those who wish to receive the MSEP tuition rate for the entirety of their college career must be enrolled in courses at UW Oshkosh no later than Spring ’21. In order to remain in the program, the state of Michigan also specifies that a student’s enrollment remain uninterrupted once enrollment begins.

There’s no way we could include all the great things about UW Oshkosh on one website. We know you’ll have questions or maybe don’t even know quite what to ask. And that’s OK! You’re not alone.

We suggest coming to visit campus if you can. That’s one of the main factors students cite as making the most impact on their decision of where to attend a university. It’s all about fit. Come try us out by visiting campus during one of our specialized MSEP Visit Days.

In the meantime, you can contact us at any time with your questions. Or you can check out some of our Admissions social media sites. Best of luck on your college search!
