Western Undergraduate Exchange Costs

The Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) offers eligible undergraduate students from western states and territories the chance to attend UCCS at a discounted rate. WUE students pay 150% of the in-state tuition rate instead of the full non-resident tuition rate. Students interested in any degree program, with the exception of the nursing degree program, are eligible to receive the WUE tuition rate.

WUE eligibility is determined at the time of application, no further action is necessary.

These are the estimated costs of yearly undergraduate tuition and fees at UCCS for WUE students. These are averages and not a guarantee of cost of attendance for a student. Costs are dependent upon the number of credit hours a student takes, choice of housing arrangements and specialized fees for certain lab courses taken.

The average cost for on-campus housing expenses includes room, meal plan, cable TV, WiFi, utilities, parking and laundry for one academic year in Summit Village Residence Halls.
