    The Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) coordinates student exchange programs among 15 western states and member entities of the U.S. Pacific Territories in order to ensure access to higher education for all citizens of the western U.S. Residents of member states are eligible to enroll in available programs of study outside their home states at reduced tuition rates.

    Eastern Washington University graduate programs participate in two WICHE programs: WRGP (Western Regional Graduate Program) and PSEP (Professional Student Exchange Program).
