Interested applicants should check the WICHE website at: http://www.wiche.edu/wue to search participating institutions by program of study. If some you are seriously considering a public out-of-state school, check the WICHE website to see if your school and program of choice is available at the WUE rate. A copy of the Arizona Western Undergraduate Exchange brochure, which lists the schools currently available to Arizona residents at the WUE tuition rate, is available in the DMHS CCC.
Interested applicants should contact the institution of choice and indicate that they would like to apply as a Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) applicant. There is not a separate WUE application.WUE is a decentralized program and the applicant applies directly to the college of choice. The WICHE Regional Office and/or the participating WICHE states are not involved in the admission process.
