Western Colorado University - Scholarships
Out of state students
Western is proud to offer our scholars the chance to learn in a small school environment with hands-on educational opportunities and access to world-class outdoor recreation while still being an affordable option.
Did you know immediately upon acceptance at Western, every student is considered for a Merit Scholarship worth between $8,000-$10,000 for out-of-state students? The amount is based on the student's GPA and ACT/SAT scores. We encourage students to use our Net Price Calculator to determine if they qualify for a merit scholarship.
We also offer these tuition discount programs for out of state students:
Western Undergraduate Exchange and Central Plains
There isn't a separate application process to be considered for WUE or CP status. All students are reviewed with a completed application file.
The Western Neighboring States Program can be added to WUE, CP or merit scholarships.
Also, students who confirm enrollment by November 1 and who are eligible for merit aid will receive an additional $500 to help them pay for school. Encourage your student to apply today!
