Western Undergraduate Exchange Program (WUE)
The Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE - pronounced "woo-ee") Program is a program of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE). Through WUE, students in western states may enroll in more than 140 two-year and four-year college institutions at a reduced tuition level: 150 percent of the institution's regular resident tuition. The program began in 1987 and all WICHE states have now signed the agreement. Students from all WICHE member states are eligible to request the WUE tuition discount.
Please note that effective January 2008, residents of Hawaii are now eligible to enroll as WUE students in both two- and four-year institutions.
WICHE member states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming. Search the WUE Online Database to see which institutions participate and which programs are available at the discounted WUE rate.
WUE tuition is considerably less than paying full nonresident tuition. At CSUB, all of our undergraduate majors (except Nursing) are available to WUE students. For more information, please contact the CSUB Admissions Office at (661) 654-3036.
