College:

 

WUE:

Is the college you're considering in the Western Undergraduate Exchange? WUE is a program that public colleges in the West participate in to offer a lower tuition to students to retain them in the western states. For example, University of Colorado - Denver, has an out of state tuition of $27K/yr, but the WUE price is $16k/yr. For Arizona State University, you'd pay $14K instead of $23k/yr. Boise State is $7k instead of $17k; Washington State University is $7.3k instead of $24.5k. So it's a huge savings and makes out of state schools possible. Please see the list of colleges that participate in WUE: https://www.wiche.edu/wue WUE scholarships are limited so you'd need to plan on applying in Sept/Oct for the best chance of getting them.
