Not from Colorado? Pay In-State Tuition through the Western Regional Graduate Program
GES is part of the Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP), which allows our graduate applicants who are residents of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) member states* to pay Colorado in-state tuition. All graduate students applying for our MA or MS programs in 2019 and later are eligible!
*WICHE member states and U.S. territories include:
Am I Eligible?
You are eligible to apply for in-state tuition through WRGP if you:
- Reside in eligible state prior to starting first academic term of WRGP acceptance.
- Are admitted into a qualifying program.
How Does It Work?
Each program differs in number of WRGP slots available, selection criteria, and WRGP application process. Please contact us for additional details.
Do I Need To Reapply Every Year?
No. Once you are admitted through WRGP, you are eligible as long as you:
- Maintain current residency of WRGP state.
- Maintain good academic standing.
Can I Establish Residency In Colorado?
No, not while you are paying in-state tuition through WRGP. If you want to build time towards establishing residency, you will need to pay the full out-of-state tuition.
