Great news! If you are a legal resident of a WICHE state (Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming), UHM now participates in the Western Regional Graduate Program (WGRP) for all Theatre degrees and concentrations. WGRP enables students from WICHE states to enroll and pay 150 percent of the UHM’s resident tuition rate, instead of the non-resident rate that an out-of-state student would normally pay. Eligibility: legal residency status in a WICHE state, 3.0 GPA, and acceptance by UHM. There is no separate application, you will be automatically reviewed for WGRP eligibility.
