Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP)
Since 1994, the MSEP has provided more affordable opportunities for students to attend out-of-state colleges and universities. The MSEP serves as the Midwest's largest multi-state tuition reciprocity program. MSEP is not a scholarship. Over 140 colleges and universities in Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota and Wisconsin have opened their doors to each others' citizens at more affordable rates.
