The Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) coordinates student exchange programs among 15 western states in order to ensure access to higher education for all citizens of the western U.S. Residents of participating states are eligible to enroll in available programs of study outside their home states at resident tuition rates. Students with a WICHE award receive a tuition waiver in an amount that reduces the nonresident rate to the equivalent of the resident rate in the student's chosen program. No service to the University is required in order to receive a WICHE waiver. These awards are currently limited to six participating graduate programs at EWU: Communication Disorders, Creative Writing, Dental Hygiene, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and Social Work. A WICHE waiver may be combined with a resident graduate service appointment to provide the equivalent of a full nonresident tuition waiver. Please review this PDF document for detailed information about requirements and conditions of these awards:
