  • NAU-Yuma Tuition Discounts and Special Plans 

    NAU-Yuma offers many tuition discounts and special plans that can help to reduce your overall tuition bill.


    Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE)

    Pay only 1.5 times in-state tuition if you’re a resident of California or any of the other 14 western states that participate in the WUE program. That’s a 60% savings from full out-of-state tuition.

    NOTE: You will automatically be evaluated for WUE eligibility after you apply to NAU. To find out now if you meet eligibility requirements contact Undergraduate Admissions


    Good Neighbor Policy

    California residents living within 75 miles of the Arizona border, and attending NAU-Yuma in person, qualify to pay in-state tuition for up to six credit hours through the Good Neighbor Policy tuition discount program. This includes students transferring from Imperial Valley College.

    NOTE: To find out if you meet eligibility requirements, contact your appropriate admissions office (Undergraduate Admissions or the Graduate College). If you are a current student, contact the Office of the Registrar


    Veteran & Active Duty Military Tuition Benefits

    NAU-Yuma proudly offers the Department of Defense Tuition Assistance rates for active duty, reservist and National Guard students. Whether pursuing a bachelor’s or master’s degree, you pay only $250 per credit hour. Contact your military education office or the NAU MCAS Yuma Military Transition Coordinator to begin the process.

    As a public institution, NAU-Yuma also qualifies for full in-state tuition assistance for veterans. This means you can use your Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits and have your tuition paid in full.

    Contact the NAU MCAS Yuma Transition Coordinator located at MCAS Yuma Education Center building 850 or by phone at (928) 317-3067 for assistance.

    As a non-Arizona resident pursuing your degree completely online, you pay only 1.5 times in-state tuition through the World Wide University (WWU) tuition discount program.

    Eligibility must be confirmed every semester. Log in to LOUIE, enroll in your classes, and then select the WWU link at the bottom of your class schedule page.

    NOTE: Tuition discounts are available during Fall and Spring semesters only. All students pay in-state tuition for Winter and Summer classes. If you reside outside the U.S., please contact the Extended Campuses Service Center at to learn about WWU eligibility. 


    WRGP: Reduced Rates for Out-of-State Graduate Students

    As a resident of one of 15 western states and enrolled in a qualified graduate program at NAU-Yuma, you may be eligible for full in-state tuition under the Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP).
