It depends, but here is an example: If the resident tuition rate of “Best Western University” where you are enrolling is $10,000, then your WUE rate would be $15,000 ($10,000 x 1.5). If you were paying the full nonresident rate, you would pay $20,000, so you are saving $5,000 ($20,000 - $15,000) per year. Please note that this is just an illustration. We have estimated savings on each institutions' WUE profile (check our database), but to find out exactly how much you'll save, check directly with your enrolling WUE institution. In the most recent academic year, some 34,000 students saved $264.7 million by enrolling through WUE.
How much tuition will I pay if I am enrolled at the WUE rate? What would I save compared to paying full nonresident tuition?
