Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources

WICHE is closely monitoring the outbreak of “SARS-CoV-2,” and the disease it causes, which has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”). To inform and facilitate your response to a rapidly changing situation, WICHE has compiled the following set of resources, which will be updated as new information becomes available.

The approved support fees shown below are for standard program lengths; adjustments are made for accelerated programs (three year programs in pharmacy and dentistry, for example). The amount listed is paid to every participating program in that field, public or private.

The Professional Student Exchange Program (PSEP) Manual details the operation of  WICHE's PSEP. It outlines the responsibilities and procedures for WICHE, State Certifying Officers, participating programs, and PSEP students. The manual was last updated in July 2012.
