The Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) Scholarship, a program coordinated by the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education, rewards students’ academic achievement by offering a reduced tuition level: in-state tuition plus 50 percent of that amount. All associate degrees are eligible for this scholarship, subject to enrollment limits established by the Montana Board of Regents. Recipients must be from Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, or Wyoming and meet the non-Montana resident admission standards. Students must be working towards the completion of their first undergraduate degree, and may not be of non-degree-seeking student status. Western Undergraduate Exchange recipients may not use the time spent as a WUE student to meet the 12 month residency requirement to earn Montana residency status and must reapply for the scholarship if they do not attend one full semester and return to Miles Community College. Application deadline: Fall Semester—August 15; Spring Semester—December 31.
