WUE Tuition Reduction
Oregon Tech participates in the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) program. WUE is a tuition-reduction program sponsored by Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE).
Students from participating states who enroll in any of Oregon Tech's WUE-eligible programs pay a reduced out-of-state tuition. Students save over $11,000 per year in out-of-state tuition.
No request is required to receive WUE. Students from WUE states who enter WUE-eligible programs will automatically be reviewed for WUE rates upon admission to Oregon Tech.
Eligible WUE States:
United States and Territories: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawai'i, Idaho, Montana, Neveda, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming and Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands
WUE tuition rates are available for a maximum of 12 quarters at Oregon Tech. To maintain eligibility you must:
- Remain continuously enrolled throughout fall, winter and spring of the academic year. Summer enrollment at Oregon Tech is not required to maintain eligibility.
- Enroll in at least 12 credits per term and maintain Satisfactory Academic Standing. Students who are simultaneously admitted to Oregon Tech and a community college to allow dual enrollment must take at least 9 credits per term from Oregon Tech with a combined total of 12 credits per term. GPA and completed credits are monitored each academic year.
- Students wishing to ‘stop-out’ of enrollment for a term must submit a written request to the Office of the Registrar before the start of that term. Requests are granted at the discretion of the university.
