Tuition Discount Programs
Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE)
Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE)
All of our academic programs are available for students eligible to participate in the WUE program. This program attracts students from all over the western region of our country; thereby adding to our diverse student body.
Important note: If you accept the WUE waiver you cannot count the time you attend as a WUE student toward the time required for establishing Alaska residency.
How much will I save?
As a WUE student, you pay 150% of our resident tuition rate, plus any fees that all students are required to pay. This offers significant savings compared to the non-resident tuition rate.
Please visit the Costs of Attendance page on the UAA Office of Student Financial Assistance website for detailed information on costs, including tuition rates, fees, housing costs, etc.
