Gain affordable access to higher education. Through enrollment at cooperating campus-based programs, WICHE’s student exchange programs offer a broad range of options for students at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels. More than 25,000 students participate in these programs. By enrolling at the participating campuses in the 2009-10 academic year, undergraduate students alone saved $173.4 million dollars in tuition by paying 150% of resident tuition, instead of the full nonresident rate. More recently, WICHE has created some new programs to assist online and nontraditional adult learners.
