WICHE and WUE Program Links

Date Updated:

09/14/16

Welcome to the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) and Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) page.

Residents of a WICHE state are eligible to request a reduced WUE tuition rate of 150% of the resident rate at one of the 145 participating schools in the West. Virtually all undergraduate fields are available to WUE students at participating colleges and universities. Some institutions have opened their entire curriculum on a space-available or first-come, first-serve basis; others offer only designated programs at the reduced WUE rate. Not all public institutions in every WICHE state participate in the program. WICHE's student exchange programs offer a broad range of higher education options for students each year at undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels. Residents of WICHE states can gain affordable access to programs, states avoid costly and unnecessary duplication of programs and facilities allowing colleges and universities to devote their resources to improving the quality of their educational offerings.
