America’s largest regional interstate tuition savings program

Through WUE, eligible students can choose from hundreds of undergraduate programs outside their home state, and pay no more than 150 percent of that institution’s resident tuition rate. Click here for the full list of participating WUE schools!
Since full nonresident college-tuition rates may exceed 300 percent of resident rates, WUE increases affordable higher-education choices for students, and minimizes the adverse impacts of student loan debt.
Undocumented Students

College-bound students who are not citizens or legal permanent residents of the United States are not eligible for state or federal financial assistance because of their immigration status. In addition, they are generally classified as international students and therefore are required to pay higher tuition and fees. However, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF) has compiled a list of scholarships that are open to undocumented students. The list is available on MALDEF's website at or by calling (213) 629-2512.


  1. Fees: Scammers use bogus fees such as "application fee," "disbursement fee," redemption fee," or "processing fees," as a way to take your money. Scholarships DO NOT require fees. If you are asked to send a check for a fee......DO NOT APPLY....IT IS A SCAM!
  2. Credit card or bank count information needed: never give credit card of bank information to receive aid.
  3. Scholarship guarantee: NO ONE controls judges decisions. Be wary of "high success rates," which often refer to matches, not award winners.
  4. No work involved: Legitimate scholarship applications require both time & energy.
  5. No contact information: Before you apply, confirm the sponsor's name and contact information. The sponsor should supply a valid phone number, mailing address and email address. Be wary of a PO Box.
  6. Unsolicited scholarships: If you are called to receive an award for which you never applied, be alert.
  7. Pressure Tactics: Do not allow your self to be pressured into applying for a scholarship, especially when they are asking you to pay money.
  8. Claim of "Exclusive Scholarships:" Legitimate sponsors will not restrict knowledge about their scholarship or award to a single service.
  9. An official name or endorsement DOES NOT automatically mean legitimacy: A sponsor may use words like "national," "educatiton," or "federal," or have an official looking seal, but might still be a scammer.
  10. Your questions are not answered directly: Can't get a straight answer? What will be done with your information? Or other questitons? Proceed with caution!

If you do suspect or catch scholarship fraud happening....follow these steps:

  1. Save all forms you receive from the suspected scammer. Keep copies of written details about the offer and any correspondence.
  2. Take notes during any seminars or phone conversations. Record the date, time, phone number, and who you spoke to.
  3. Report the suspected scammer to local law enforcement, your students guidance counselor or any of the following organizations:
