Enrollment Information

All undergraduate degree programs are open to WUE students. New freshman or transfer students (admitted with 13-90 semester credit hours) enrolling for the first time at CMU are eligible for WUE consideration. Currently enrolled students cannot be considered for WUE after enrollment at CMU. Returning students (those sitting out one or more semesters from CMU) will be considered on an individual basis.

For WUE consideration, students must submit a completed CMU application, all required transcripts and/or test scores, and a copy of a valid WUE state driver's license. Shortly after admission, students with a minimum GPA of 2.0 and a permanent address in one of the WUE qualifying states will be notified of their WUE status via a separate award letter.

Through acceptance of the special WUE tuition classification, students acknowledge their intent to maintain their legal domicile in their home state at the time of application. If students desire to change their legal domicile to any other state, including Colorado, they must notify the WUE contact in the Admissions Office. At that time a student may be changed to out of state for tuition purposes. Please note that time accrued while participating in the WUE tuition program cannot be used to establish domiciliary intent for purposes of claiming Colorado residency.

To maintain WUE program status once awarded, students must:
* be enrolled in consecutive fall and spring terms registering in a minimum of 12 credits each semester. Summer term requires a minimum of 6 credits;
* maintain a minimum 2.0 CMU GPA each academic semester; and
* remain a permanent resident of their home WUE state (maintaining their WUE state driver's license is required).

The Admissions Office will review students for continued eligibility based on the above maintenance criteria. Students who continue to meet the criteria will have WUE until they complete 120 credit hours or graduate with their bachelor's degree; whichever comes first. Those students not meeting maintenance criteria will be changed to out-of-state tuition status.
