Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE)

  • The Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) program provides reduced tuition to students who are residents of one of the states/territories participating in the WUE program. This tuition classification allows students to pay tuition at a maximum of 150 percent of the In-State Resident tuition rate.
