PSEP — STATE CERTIFYING OFFICES

To be considered for support through WICHE’s PSEP, you must apply to your home state’s office. Below we’ve listed the different health care fields that your state supports, as well as your state officer’s contact information. Most of our states have posted their applications online (click on their links) and have posted additional details about their specific residency requirements and service payback obligations.

Remember, you must apply to your home state by October 15th for priority consideration.
Most states do not accept late applications.
IMPORTANT: Vet Med applicants are strongly encouraged to complete their state application for WICHE PSEP support by early September. 

Please note: Although the States of California, Idaho, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands are WICHE members, they do not support their residents through the Professional Student Exchange Program.
