Western Undergraduate Exchange: Your Ticket to Affordable Out-of-State College in the West
Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education
WUE is the Western Undergraduate Exchange, a program coordinated by the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE). Through WUE, students in Western states may enroll in participating two-year and four-year public college programs at a reduced tuition level: up to 150 percent of the institution's regular resident tuition. In all cases, WUE tuition is considerably less than nonresident tuition. Virtually all undergraduate fields are available to WUE students at one or more of the participating colleges and universities. Some institutions have opened their entire curriculum on a space-available or first-come, first-served basis. Others offer only designated programs at the discounted WUE rate. For the academic year 2013-2014, the 25th year of WUE's operation, resident students from the following states may participate, if they meet eligibility requirements: (1) Alaska; (2) Idaho; (3) Oregon; (4) Arizona; (5) Montana; (6) South Dakota; (7) California; (8) Nevada; (9) Utah; (10) Colorado; (11) New Mexico; (12) Washington; (13) Hawaii; (14) North Dakota; and (15) Wyoming.
