Western Undergraduate Exchange Program

Giving out-of-state students a price within reach 

Did you know that certain out-of-state students are eligible to receive a reduced tuition rate at Northern Arizona University?

With the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) Program, students who meet the university’s admission criteria and live in one of 14 Western states can receive a tuition rate of 1.5 times the cost of in-state tuition—significantly less than out-of-state tuition. This is a reciprocal arrangement between WUE states designed to allow students access to programs that may not be available in their states.

To be eligible, you must be a resident of one of these states:
