Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE)

MSU will be offering a limited number of Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) scholarships to new freshmen enrolling each fall. Students from eligible WUE states* must complete the below application, to be considered for WUE. Students who do not submit the application will not be considered.

To be eligible to apply for the WUE Scholarship, students must have a minimum cumulative 3.0 high school GPA (self-reported on your application for admission).

Each WUE application is reviewed by a campus committee to select each year’s WUE awardees.

There is no waitlist or appeal process for WUE Scholarships once awards are made. All WUE offers are final.

WUE will be equal to approximately 1.5 times the in-state tuition rate. All recipients will be notified as soon as that value is available via email. WUE will be a greater value than any Achievement Award previously offered.

WUE is not stackable with Achievement Awards and we will award you the scholarship of greater value. Please note, only recipients of awards will be notified.

*WUE States include: AK, AZ, CA, CO, HI, ID, NV, NM, ND, OR, SD, UT, WA, WY and U.S. Pacific Territories & freely associated states (Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands, Guam, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, and Republic of Palau).
