<p>This is such a great program. WUE helped me achieve my academic goals by allowing me to attend a college outside my home state for in-state tuition. This is such a blessing for me, and it has cut my college debt in half. Thank you so much for allowing me to participate within this program. :)</p>

WUE is such a great program. It helped me achieve my academic goals by allowing me to attend a college outside my home state for reduced tuition. It cut my college debt in half! Thank you so much for allowing me to participate in WUE.

The WUE program has aided me for the past 4 1/2 years by keeping my tuition at in-state and a half which was a significant drop from having to pay out-of-state tuition. Every semester they required that I meet with an adviser just to make sure everything was moving along okay. sometimes these visits would take half a minute because I didn't have any questions and they didn't see any issues. Other times the adviser would take to time to sit down with me and go over any questions I had, clarify requirements, and help me decide what I needed to do in semesters to come.

WUE has helped me for the past four years by keeping my tuition at 150% of in-state, which is significantly less than full out-of-state tuition.

Physician Assistant

I am originally from Wyoming, went to undergraduate and University of Wyoming, and then went on to study to be a Physician Assistant at University of Colorado. There is no PA school in Wyoming, so WICHE allowed me to attend PA school at an affordable price at my #1 choice of school. I have been out of school now for 2 and a half years, and practiced in Wyoming for 2 years in cardiology, and am now in Denver practicing at University of Colorado Hospital in Cadiac Electrophysiology. I would love to move back to Wyoming to practice once my husband finishes residency in Colorado. Thank you to WICHE for allowing me to pursue my dreams, and serve the people of Wyoming and Colorado. I encourage our legislators to continue to support for this program, especially as tuition for college and grad/professional programs continues to skyrocket and makes pursuing a career in medicine impossible for many. Thank you WICHE!

There is no PA school in Wyoming, but WICHE's professional program allowed me to attend PA school at an affordable price at my #1 choice of school. After graduation I practiced in Wyoming for two years in cardiology. I'm now in Denver practicing at the University of Colorado Hospital in cardiac electrophysiology and look forward to returning to Wyoming to practice once my husband finishes residency in Colorado. Thank you to WICHE for allowing me to pursue my dreams, and serve the people of Wyoming and Colorado. I encourage our legislators to continue to support for this program, especially as tuition for college and grad/professional programs continues to skyrocket and makes pursuing a career in medicine impossible for many. Thank you WICHE!

I am immensely grateful for the assistance I have received! Said assistance has allowed me to focus on my studies and has relieved financial burdens that would have required me to consider a different course than the one I have currently chosen. My current plans are to return to my home state of Wyoming and serve as a Family Medicine doctor. Without the WICHE program I would most likely have been steered to a specialty in which I would have sufficient financial compensation to deal with the debt that is out-of-state tuition. I would have been forced to go through multiple lenders in order to finance the four years of medical school.

I am immensely grateful for the assistance I have received from WICHE's PSEP! It has allowed me to focus on my studies and has relieved financial burdens that would have required me to consider a different career. I plan to return to my home state of Wyoming and practice family medicine. Without Wyoming's participation in PSEP, I probably would have been steered to a more lucrative specialty in order to payback high student debt.

Audiology

The WRGP program has given me a future. Without it, I would have had to start over with a different career. My graduate program is not available in my home state, and I can't get pursue a career audiology without a doctorate degree. WRGP has given me the opportunity to obtain the necessary education to become an audiologist in another state.

Since I started my undergraduate career I've always known I want to practice medicine. Once I decided that I was going to apply to Physician Assistant programs I was excited to discover the WICHE PSEP. Through the PSEP I am able to attend school at Idaho State University at a reasonable cost while attaining my ultimate educational goal. I would like to thank the state of Wyoming for participating in this program that has had such a positive influence on my life. I would be proud to return to my home state to work and serve my community after all of the support it has given me.

Physician Assistant

I am from Wyoming, which does not have a medical school or a physician assistant program. WICHE's PSEP program has allowed me to attend a physician assistant program at a much more reasonable price than I would be able to find anywhere else. Since I will graduate with fewer student loans I am much more inclined to return to Wyoming and practice in primary care. I was also fortunate enough to receive the WUE scholarship while attaining my undergraduate degree at the University of New Mexico. It was a wonderful experience to attend college outside of Wyoming and experience new opportunities. At UNM I was able to prepare for my medical career through the medical school there better than I would have been able to in Wyoming. Without WICHE's WUE and PSEP programs I may not be where I am today because I would have had to attend the University of Wyoming and may not have been able to afford physician assistant school. I am so grateful for this program and the outstanding opportunities it provides to students. Bailey Snyder Physician Assistant Student
