The rising cost of a college education is a serious concern for students and families, especially when an out-of-state college is being considered. For years, the Western Under- graduate Exchange has reduced tuition costs for students in western states. But each participating college offers reduced tuition in a different way. Figuring out how it works, and comparing dozens of schools, has been an overwhelming task. Until now!
