Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) Scholarship



The WUE region

NOTE: Students attending any campus of the University of Alaska system with a Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) Scholarship are receiving the benefit of reduced tuition because of their residency in a partner state. Therefore, time spent using WUE does not count toward the time needed to establish residency in Alaska for tuition purposes.
