Tuition and Funding

Tuition Savings for Students from Western States

Newly admitted students from select western states may qualify for in-state tuition through the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education, or WICHE, a tuition reduction program administered by the Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP).

If you are a resident of a WICHE member state, you may apply to this tuition-savings program as part of the online application process through the CSU Graduate School. WRGP tuition reduction applications are then reviewed and approved by the Office of Financial Aid.
