IBHE Statement About
Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP)


Illinois students who are already attending college through the Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP), including students who are planning to attend college this next academic year (2021-2022) with MSEP benefits, will continue to receive those benefits for the duration of their pursuit of a degree. Since no Illinois college or university is currently opted in to the MSEP program, the state is considered an inactive member until an educational institution decides to rejoin.

The Illinois Board of Higher Education is committed to helping students achieve their academic dreams and will continue highlighting the financial support programs available for students at Illinois’ world-class colleges and universities.
