WSU Transfer WUE (Cougar Award for Transfers)

$10,000 per year

With the Transfer Western Undergraduate Exchange or WUE (here we call it the Cougar Award for Transfers), an out-of-state transfer student may receive a $10,000 award. Qualified students receive the award automatically, and are notified upon their offer of admission to WSU. No additional action or forms are required for consideration.


Awarded to admitted transfer students with 27+ transferable semester credit hours with a GPA of 3.0 or higher.

If you don’t have 27 transferable semester credits, you must have a minimum unweighted high school GPA of 3.0 AND a cumulative minimum transfer GPA of 3.0.

To receive the award, you must also:

  • Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident of the U.S.
  • Be a resident outside the state of Washington and charged non-resident tuition
  • Enroll at the Pullman campus as a transfer student

The award is renewable for an additional three years or until attainment of first Bachelor’s degree, whichever comes first.
