Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE)

Out-of-state students from Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) states can attend CU Denver at a discounted tuition rate through the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) program—saving you more than $11,000 every year compared to the nonresident tuition rate, based on enrollment in 15 credit hours per semester. That’s almost like getting free money!

What’s better—receiving the WUE tuition benefit is EASY! Admitted students who indicate they're legal residents of a WICHE state on the application for admission, based on their permanent address, are automatically classified as a WUE student.
