Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) Scholarship

If you are a resident of a state in the western region, you can qualify for the WUE Scholarship to reduce your tuition costs. At UAF, the WUE Scholarship is available to all undergraduate students pursuing a UAF degree.

 


 

Map of WUE participating statesThe WUE region

Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming and the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands (CNMI).

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.

 


 

WUE Tuition and Fees

As a WUE Scholar, your scholarship award is applied to your tuition, reducing it to 150 percent of the amount charged to Alaska residents. University fees, books and supplies, and room and board are the same for all students at UAF.
