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.
- Please work with the Financial Aid office regarding what scholarship/aid options are available under this residency status.
- To see what the current WUE residency status rate for classes is for the current term, please visit the Cashier’s Office to calculate your rate.
**Note: If you receive WUE residency status, you cannot simultaneously create domicile in the State of Colorado or work towards the physical presence requirement needed to establish In-State residency status. If you are planning to establish Colorado In-State residency at some point in the near future, you have the option to decline WUE and pay Out-of-State residency classification rates until you are eligible to petition to establish In-State residency.
How to Apply
- You can petition for a change from your current residency status to WUE residency status by completing a Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) Application.
