- W.U.E. (Western Undergraduate Exchange)
- The Western Undergraduate Exchange (W.U.E) is a program through which students in participating states may enroll in designated institutions and programs in other participating states at a special, reduced tuition level. Students do not need to demonstrate financial need to receive the W.U.E tuition benefit. When admitted as a W.U.E student, the student will pay 150 percent of the institution's regular resident tuition (i.e., 50 percent more than resident tuition), plus any fees that all students are required to pay. Contact the institution you plan to attend to find out if they participate in the W.U.E. program.
- College information available in counseling office, INTERNET, college fairs or by contacting the college directly
