The University of Wyoming is a proud participant in the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) program. UW will recognize a select number of first time non-resident freshmen students from 14 western states* for their academic excellence (high school GPA, test scores, and academic rigor) through awarding of the WUE Scholarship.
Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) recipients will pay tuition at 150% of the resident tuition rate. Awards are competitive and limited. The total value of this award will vary based on a recipient's courseload and on the tuition rates established by the UW Board of Trustees each year. Because of the value of the WUE award, students chosen for this award will not receive the Rocky Mountain Scholars Award, but may be considered for additional scholarships through UW colleges, departments, and other scholarship awarding entities.
The selection of recipients in the upcoming Fall freshmen class will begin after December 1. For full WUE Scholarship consideration, students must be a resident of a WUE participating state* and have all of the following items submitted to the UW Admission Office so they arrive on or before December 1.
Students selected to receive the WUE Scholarship must confirm their enrollment at UW by May 1.
Due to the competitive nature of this award, it is only awarded to new freshmen beginning at UW in the Fall semester and cannot be deferred.
WUE awards are competitive and the total number of awards are limited. Those receiving the heavily discounted WUE tuition rate will not be eligible to receive the Rocky Mountain Scholars award.
