For Fall 2020, it's more difficult to get WUE at U of Wyoming

Fall 2019 admits were given WUE($10.5k value) for either a 3.1/1450 (GPA/SAT) or a 4.0/1160 and combinations in between:

However, Fall 2020 admits will only get $4k for these same combinations of a 3.1/1450 or a 4.0/1160:

    It has been very difficult to get the WUE at Wyoming for many years, but very easy to get some amount from the Rocky Mtn Scholars (now Brown and Gold) and those scholarships are available to OOS students from any state, not just western exchange states.

    Not all those 2019 applicants with a 4.0/1160 were given a WUE award. The WUE awards were very limited and more got the Rocky Mtn Scholar, which might have been the same dollar amount but different requirements to keep the awards.

    Thanks for the insight. I was assuming WUE was guaranteed for those with the 4.0/1160. My D is about 3.6/1100, which had her at a $6k Rocky Mountain scholarship, but under the new criteria, she'd only get $4k.

    Not a large difference, but UW was already $2k more than U of Idaho when doing an apple-to-apple comparison. So now UW is $4k more per year, or $16k more for 4 years. So, now it is a sizeable difference.

    Not that it effects my D, but U of Idaho dropped their 3.2 GPA requirement for WUE. https://www.uidaho.edu/ui/wue
