If you are a resident of one of 14 western states, you are eligible to apply to participate in the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) program. WUE students pay reduced tuition rates that are equal to one and one-half times the normal in-state rates instead of the out-of-state rates. This means students will pay $158.60 per credit under WUE instead of the out-of-state rate of $425.25 per credit. WUE tuition applies to all courses offered at Aims, including online courses.

Please note: Participation in the WUE program is intended for students who do not wish to make Colorado their permanent home. If you participate in WUE, you will not be eligible for in-state tuition unless you leave Aims or request to pay out-of-state tuition rates for a minimum of one year. Other colleges may not give you the in-state tuition rate if you have participated in WUE at Aims in the three semesters immediately before you transfer.
If you have questions about how the WUE program can work for you, please call 970.339.6535.
