Tuition Discount Programs
Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE)
Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE)
When initially admitted as a WUE student, you pay 150 percent of the institution's regular resident tuition, plus any fees that all students are required to pay.
All of our academic programs are available for students interested in participating in the WUE program. This program attracts students from all over the western region of our country; thereby adding to our diverse student body. If you accept the WUE waiver you cannot count the time as a WUE student toward the time required for establishing Alaska residency.
