Are you interested in getting out of CA for college but think you can't afford it? That may not be true. As a CA resident you are eligible to request a reduced WUE (Western Undergraduate Exchange) tuition rate of 150% of the resident rate at one of the 145 participating schools in the West. For a list of participating institutions please follow the link to WUE.
Things to know about the WUE
- Not every out-of-state University participates in the WUE tuition rate. (e.g. Univ. of Oregon & Colorado do NOT)
- Each University may put different limits on WUE majors available. (e.g. Univ. of Montana administers the WUA as a merit scholarship and puts no restrictions on majors but the Univ. of Arizona & Arizona State put limits on what WUE students can major in)
- Some of our favorites: Boise State University, University of Montana, Southern Oregon University, University of Hawaii - Manoa, Western Washington, Portland State, Colorado State.
