Discounted Tuition Rates at More than 150 Institutions (July 29, 2014)

The Northern Marianas College is inviting prospective college students to learn more about tuition discounts (at over 150 institutions in the western United States) at the free Information Session planned for tonight (Wednesday, July 30, 2014). The session will focus on the CNMI’s membership in the Western Interstate Commerce for Higher Education (WICHE) and the programs that it administers for college students.

The free session will be held from 5:30pm to 6:30pm in Room D1 (across NMC Bookstore) on Wednesday, July 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.

For more information about WICHE or the planned information session, please contact Christine Inos at 237-6782 or email [email protected]
