Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP)

About WRGP

The Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP) allows master’s, graduate certificate, and doctoral students who are residents of WICHE member states to enroll in 800+ graduate programs at some 60 public institutions outside of their home state and pay up to 150 percent of resident tuition. In fall 2018, 1,478 students enrolled through WRGP and saved $22.7 million dollars in tuition.


For Graduate Students

Visit the WRGP Savings Finder for a list of partner institutions and eligible graduate programs. Participating universities don't offer all of their graduate programs at the WRGP tuition rate. If the program you want to enroll in is eligible, apply directly to the university’s graduate studies department and identify yourself as WICHE WRGP applicant. WRGP applicants must meet the university's WRGP admission requirements and deadlines.




For Graduate Programs Interested in Joining the WRGP Network


Graduate programs no longer need to be distinctive to participate in WRGP. However, they must be approved to participate by the enrolling institution’s provost, vice president of academic affairs, or graduate dean.  Most--but not all--universities have completed their profile of eligible graduate programs on our WRGP Savings Finder.  If you're a program dean and you wish to have your graduate program considered for WRGP, please contact your provost, vice president of academic affairs, or graduate dean to find out more about your university's approval process.
