Out of State Colleges and Tuition

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 Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) 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).
