Helping Students Access Higher Education: WUE and Interstate Passport®, RMACAC-PNACAC-WACAC 2019 Super Conference
May 21 @ 3:45 pm - 4:45 pm
Kim Nawrocki, Coordinator, Student Access Programs and Events, Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education; Kate Springsteen, Member Services Coordinator, Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education; Stacey Case, Program Advisor – Technical Specialties, Salt Lake Community College; and Itsel Venegas Trujillo, Admissions Counselor, Western Oregon University
Counselors will gain insight on how students can utilize WICHE’s student access programs and dare to dream about higher education opportunities outside their home state. The Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) offers reduced nonresident tuition at partnering institutions, while Interstate Passport® makes transferring more efficient, saving students time and money. Both WICHE programs offer savings that increase access and affordability, which is especially important to first-generation and traditionally under-represented students with limited resources available to them.
