Student Access Programs

Helping students save on tuition, transfer more easily, and gain strong credentials

WICHE operates three Student Access Programs that together saved 45,000+ students $451+ million in 2019-20. Each program supports one of three educational niches: undergraduate, graduate, and professional health care studies.

Details that govern each program vary, but–by lowering the cost of tuition–they share a common approach. Students gain from increased choice and savings. Schools gain by optimizing enrollments. And states gain by growing the skills of those they serve and strengthening their workforce. It’s a true “triple-win.”

“I was unable to afford out-of-state tuition, especially for a degree program in a field like acting that is difficult to break into. WUE allowed me to pursue my dream career and graduate with very little debt.”

“The WRGP tuition rate allowed me to earn a valuable education without forcing me to go into large amounts of debt. I’m thankful to be able to serve others in the future as a psychologist, and may not have had that opportunity without WRGP.”
