WRGP for Departments

WRGP is a tuition agreement for graduate students from participating states that offers in-state tuition.


How should we use WRGP strategically?

Programs should consider WRGP if:

  • Enrollment is dropping or is below capacity/target
  • Student diversity or quality is lacking; need to reach new markets
  • Assistantships or other student supports are minimal

Programs should not join WRGP if:

  • Student interest already exceeds capacity
  • Most students already have tuition waivers

Current Process

  • Program applies to Grad Studies, with approval of college dean
  • Approved programs offer in-state tuition to WICHE-eligible students
  • Tracked in Banner (improvements underway)
  • WRGP Program Application
