This information is for the Fall 2023/Spring 2024 academic year. Unless otherwise noted, awards listed are for the academic year and not by semester.
The University of Wyoming will recognize non-resident first-time entering transfer students seeking their first bachelor's degree, who meet the minimum requirements below, as recipients of the highly competitive Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) award. Limited awards are made to students based upon their cumulative transfer GPA. Transfer students who have a 3.85 GPA or higher will pay tuition at 150% of the resident tuition, which is approximately $13,290 less than the standard non-resident tuition for students taking 12-18 credit hours per semester, based upon the block tuition model.
The WUE Transfer Award cannot be combined with the Pokes Transfer Commitment or any institutional scholarship aid, including those made possible by the University of Wyoming Foundation.
Please note: All University of Wyoming financial awards are only available to eligible admits. The awards are subject to available funding and the approval of the UW Board of Trustees; they reserve the right to change said rates at any time.
GPA is calculated using grades earned in credits taken at previous institutions.
Transfer credits must be a minimum of 12 completed post-high school.
The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid will consider the final cumulative transfer GPA for first-time transferring students for a potential increase in commitment award level. To be considered, official transcripts must be received no later than the first day of class of your incoming semester. This applies to students who have confirmed enrollment by the above deadlines. Increases are subject to available funding.
The WUE Transfer Award is renewable for up to 6 semesters (3 academic years) or completion of first bachelor's degree, whichever comes first.
