WICHE Info Session on April 30  (April 24, 2014)

The Northern Marianas College will be hosting an information session next Wednesday for those interested in learning more about the Western Interstate Commerce for Higher Education (WICHE) and the programs that it administers for college students.

The information session will be held from 5:30pm to 6:30pm in Room D1 (across NMC Bookstore) on Wednesday, April 30, 2014. There is no fee to participate in the session.

The Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education is a regional organization that, until recently, had 15 member states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawai'i, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. The CNMI became the 16th member of WICHE last year with support from the CNMI governor and members of the legislature.

The organization works to improve access to higher education and ensure student success.

Among other benefits, membership in WICHE allows CNMI students who are pursuing their college degree to be eligible for reduced tuition rates at 2- and 4- year public post-secondary institutions like California State University, University of Nevada in Las Vegas, Boise State University, Washing State University, and other universities and colleges in the western U.S.

For graduate students (those pursuing a master’s or doctorate degree), WICHE’s “Western Regional Graduate Program” enables students to enroll in more than 250 graduate programs and pay the resident tuition rate, instead of the nonresident rate that an out-of-state student would normally pay.
