Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE)
2020-2021 Terms and Conditions
You have been offered the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) reduced tuition rate. The rate you will be responsible for will be based on one and a half times (150%) the tuition rate for resident students up to 18 hours of tuition per semester (fall and spring) beginning Fall 2020, for a maximum of eight semesters, or until you receive a baccalaureate degree, whichever comes first. It will not cover fees.
|Renewal Requirements||Your scholarship may be renewed for the second year, provided you maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA and complete twenty-four (24) credit hours during the two semesters of the academic year (12 hours each, fall and spring semesters), twenty (20) of which must be graded. We will review your standing for these requirements after the completion of your second semester.|
|Additional Information||Please be aware that to receive this offer, you must enroll as a full-time student each semester. To be considered full-time, it is required that you register for 12 or more credit hours. Failure to do so may result in the cancellation of your scholarship.|
By state law, students receiving this award, as described above, time spent at the University of Utah while receiving the WUE tuition rate may not be utilized towards the twelve (12) continuous months of in-state residency required to establish Utah resident status for tuition purposes.
|Other Restrictions||WUE is a tuition discount program, not a scholarship. If you withdraw from a course, you will be responsible for paying for the full amount of tuition for that withdrawn course.|
|Certification||Students who receive a scholarship, fellowship, or other financial aid administered by the University of Utah are required by state law to certify that they are eligible to receive the scholarship as a U.S. citizen or a citizen of another country who is lawfully present in the U.S. If students do not know whether they are in the U.S. lawfully, they should seek the advice of an immigration attorney before accepting this offer.|
|Deferment and Leave of Absence|| Newly accepted freshmen who wish to defer their start date to a later semester and
hold their scholarship may apply for a deferment through the Office of Admissions.
For more information about how to apply for a deferment, visit: admissions.utah.edu/apply/deferment. Scholarship recipients considering a deferment must confirm their intent to enroll
and accept their scholarship by June 1, 2020. Students have up until the first day
of classes (August 24, 2020) to apply for a deferment.
The University Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (UOSFA) will also, in extenuating circumstances, allow a student to take a leave of absence from a scholarship once he or she is a continuing student. For questions regarding eligibility for either deferral or leave of absence, please contact the UOSFA.
|Contact Information||For questions or concerns, please contact the UOSFA at (801) 581-6211 or firstname.lastname@example.org.|
