Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE)

Eligibility Requirements

Students must first submit an application for admission and declare their intent to maintain legal domicile in their home state at the time of application. Students are welcome to submit a WUE contract before they have been admitted to the University; however, we will not review, process, or inform them of our decision until after they have received a final admission decision. This takes place after we have received and reviewed a student’s final official transcript upon high school or community college graduation.
