Occupational Therapy Doctorate

By offering reduced cost for attending course and working towards my OTD, I was able to afford and attend the online education program offered through the University of Utah Occupational Therapy Division. I was able to pay the fees and costs on a semester to semester rate without effecting my family's lifestyle or finances greatly. I am excited about this great opportunity, as I was able to continue working, living with my family and obtain a much desired degree. My plans are to look for a faculty position in the near future and hope to continue sharing my love for Occupational Therapy with students.

The WRGP reduced tuition rate made it affordable to enroll in the online DOT education program offered through the University of Utah's Occupational Therapy Division. I pay resident tuition instead of nonresident so my family's lifestyle and finances are not significantly affected. I am excited about this great opportunity. I am able to continue working and live with my family while studying for a much desired degree. I plan to look for a faculty position in the near future and want to continue sharing my love for occupational therapy with students.

Second Language Teaching

I taught Middle School Spanish in Wyoming for a few years, and I knew that Utah State University had a graduate program that I was interested in due to its focus and cost. I would have had to wait much longer to have built up the savings to leave my job and enter the program had I not received the WICHE's WRGP grant. This grant made it possible for me to immediately enter the program, and acquire the skills that I hope will be beneficial to second language learners for years to come.

I taught middle school Spanish in Wyoming for a few years, and heard about Utah State University's Second Language Teaching graduate program. Without the WRGP discounted tuition available through WICHE, I would have had to wait much longer to save enough to leave my job and pursue my graduate studies. WRGP made it possible for me to immediately enter the program and acquire the skills that I hope will be beneficial to second language learners for years to come.

Veterinary medicine

I just finished my first year of veterinary school at Colorado State University. Since my home state of Wyoming does not have a veterinary college, I was fortunate enough to be sponsored by my state through the WICHE program. This program has allowed me to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian. When I think of my classmates who are paying out-of-state tuition, I am so thankful that I have the WICHE program to help me keep my student loans to a reasonable amount. Even though Wyoming does not require WICHE students to return to the state after graduation, I plan on returning anyway because I want to give back to the state that has given me so much. I hope the legislators continue to support this invaluable program, even in these tough economic times.

WICHE has helped me so much. Words can not explain the gratitude I feel for receiving PSEP support. I will graduate in 2012 without the feeling of drowning in debt for a lifetime. I can begin a job without the pressure of paying back as many loans while my husband and I are starting a family. Thank you so much, WICHE!

I would not have been able to go to veterinary school without WICHE. The cost of tuition is already ridiculous; add onto that the cost of out-of-state fees and I would have spent the rest of my life paying off loans. While Wyoming does not require me to return after graduation, it is the only place that I would like to live and work. John Knudsen

Physician Assistant

I am a physician assistant (PA) student at A.T. Still University in Mesa, AZ. My home state of Wyoming did not have a PA program, so I had to enroll out of state. WICHE’s PSEP has made attending PA school affordable. It has cut my tuition expenses dramatically. I am very grateful to this program. Without it, it would have been difficult for me to attend graduate school. It is my desire to come back to Wyoming to practice and return the investment made in me. I urge our legislators to continue to support this wonderful program.
