What’s a PSEP Award Worth?
Students save on tuition, thanks to their state’s PSEP support
PSEP operates with the generous support of participating legislatures of WICHE member states and territories. They appropriate funds to buy down tuition costs for resident students to pursue professional degrees in selected healthcare fields. Funds are administered through WICHE and sent directly to enrolling university healthcare programs.
These per-student award amounts for each eligible PSEP field are approved biennially by the WICHE Commission, most recently in May 2022. Download the May 2022 Support Fees Memorandum for AY 2023-24 and AY 2024-25.
