All admitted non-residents from one of the 15 participating states and U.S. territories will receive an offer to participate in either March (for Fall admission) or October (for Spring admission). No separate request or application is required. Those eligible will receive an email with additional information and the WUE contract from the Program Coordinator.
We are open to all majors at this time, except for Nursing.
You may participate in WUE for a maximum of five years if you are a full-time freshman, or three years if you are an upper-division transfer.
No. The WUE tuition fee rate applies if you remain in good standing and make satisfactory progress toward a degree. If you leave the University for more than two consecutive semesters, you will need to reapply for admission.
The WUE tuition fee rate is 150% of resident fees. For the Fall 2015 term, California resident tuition fees are $2,736. 150% equals a WUE tuition rate of $4,104 based on full-time enrollment (12 units). Additional student-mandated fees apply regardless of residency. See the chart on the WUE page for more details.
Yes. Contact the Global Education Office for more information on study abroad options.
Since I don’t live in California, how do I take the English Placement Test (EPT) and/or the Elementary Level Math (ELM) exam?
Contact the Education Testing Service (ETS) at (925) 808-2142 or firstname.lastname@example.org to have the test administered outside California.
WUE participants are not permitted to request reclassification for tuition purposes. You will be classified as a non-resident for the duration of your undergraduate degree.
If I leave Sacramento State and want to return and participate in WUE, can I still qualify for WUE?
Perhaps. If you are eligible for admission and a non-resident from one of the 15 participating states and US territories, you may be considered for WUE.
