Hello! The Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) is a great way for students from participating states to receive a reduced out-of-state tuition at specific institutions. As a quick recap, the WUE includes 16 participating states and territories: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.

Here's a list of some WUE schools (though not exhaustive):

1. Arizona State University

2. California State University, Long Beach

3. University of Colorado, Denver

4. University of Hawaii at Manoa

5. Boise State University (Idaho)

6. Montana State University

7. University of Nevada, Reno

8. New Mexico State University

9. University of North Dakota

10. Oregon State University

11. South Dakota State University

12. Utah State University

13. Washington State University

14. University of Wyoming

You can find a more comprehensive list (over 160 participating institutions), along with specifics about each school, by visiting the official WUE website: http://www.wiche.edu/wue

When considering the WUE program, it's important to remember that not all majors may be eligible for the reduced tuition. Furthermore, some schools may limit the number of WUE awards given, so it's essential to apply early to maximize your chances of receiving it.

As for personal experiences, many students who participate in the WUE program find it to be a cost-effective way of receiving a high-quality education while experiencing living in a different state. It's important to do your research on each specific school and program you're interested in, as certain ones may be more well-regarded or better-suited to your educational and career goals, and the WUE may not apply to every institution. Additionally, visiting schools and connecting with current students is a fantastic way to get a feel for each campus and see if it's a great fit for you.
