Western Undergraduate Exchange
The Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) is a program of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE). Students who are residents of WICHE states or the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands (CNMI) may enroll at participating two and four-year college programs outside of their home state or territory at a reduced tuition rate. WICHE states include Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Commonwealth of Northern Marianas Islands, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. If you’re a resident of a WICHE state or CNMI, you can study at RRCC or any one of the 135+ participating schools in the west and pay reduced tuition (100% of the full resident tuition rate). Please see restrictions below:
- Only Colorado WUE/WICHE students are eligible to participate in the College Opportunity Fund (COF).
- A student participating in the WUE/WICHE program may not use the time in Colorado to fulfill the physical presence requirement for in-state tuition.
- Colorado WUE/WICHE participants must comply with HB-06S-1023 by proving lawful presence in the United States. See the Tuition and Fees page in this schedule for details on WUE/WICHE rates.
- The Physician Assistant (PA) program is not available for this program, but PA students may qualify for the Professional Student Exchange Program (PSEP), which enables students to enroll in selected out-of-state professional programs because those fields of study are not available at public institutions in their home states. Please note that residents of California, Oregon and South Dakota are not eligible to enroll through PSEP. Information is available at www.wiche.edu/psep
