With a little extra work, you can find thousands more scholarships that aren't administered by Northwest College.
You'll pay reduced out-of-state tuition if you live in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska*, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah or Washington. These states participate in the the Western Undergraduate Exchange Program (WUE). Compare WUE tuition to Wyoming resident and nonresident tuition.
*Northwest College extends the WUE scholarship to Nebraska residents even though Nebraska is not a WUE state.
