Many of you probably know this, but the U has a merit based entrance program that allows incoming freshmen from western states and some islands to pay 150% of instate tuition. Significant savings over regular out of state tuition. I think the acronym is WUSA.

Looks like my kids matriculated a few years too early.

As long as you have a frank and open talk with your kids about matriculation, there shouldn’t be a problem.

Been around for a while. Some Universities don’t participate and some limit majors you can study under this (esp. UA). Meant to provide opportunities that didn’t exist at your state schools, but has grown. I think there are certain spots, you have to meet some min requirements (gpa), and you usually are locked in as a WUE student so it’s hard to gain residency after, but a good deal. Utah at 150% in-state is still a little cheaper than in-state CU or CSU, but we’ll see what the kids want.

Utah St. has in-state tuition for most 1st tear, then by working the summer, you cam get residency. My nephew did this, then transferred to the U, then finished with 2 more years (lots of HS AP and CE courses).

I agree, otherwise they may turn out to be reprobates.

As a 1978 graduate of the U, do I get to still brag to friends, family, and the occasional zoob that I went to a top-ranked school? Because I don’t think it was in 1978.

We should say it was a university on the rise at that time, and now its rise has simply continued, and it ain’t done yet.

It’s kind of like the guys who graduated from the UCLA law school years ago. They’re getting a great deal on the tuition and energy they spent on their degrees early on, because UCLA is now ranked very highly. But it wasn’t when they were there. The very same is true of the Utah law school, where I graduated. Everybody from my era has benefited from the school’s rise in the rankings and increased prestige since then.

Besides, I’m sure your 1978 cohort’s performance was a critical part of the U’s overall rise.

So yes, take credit! :wink:
