Thinking of joining the WUE network?
Learn how you can join the WUE network, assess whether your campus is eligible to participate, and view our WUE Memorandum of Agreement. By becoming a WUE institution, you can fill seats with nonresident students from 16 states and territories who might not otherwise attend, and help them realize a more affordable college education. WUE is an added inducement in recruiting out-of-state athletic talent and optimizing student housing capacity. And you can tailor the available majors and admissions criteria to ensure that WUE serves your institution’s–and state’s–unique needs and priorities.
