Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP)

The MSMHA Program participates in the Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP), which is a tuition-reciprocity arrangement with 15 participating states and 1 Commonwealth. The WRGP program allows students who are residents of these participating states to pay in-state tuition for the duration of the MSMHA program. In addition to Colorado, the participating states include: Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. 

Those wishing to apply for WRGP status must complete the WRGP Application and submit it to the Program Administrator at the same time that the UC Denver application for admission is submitted online.

WRGP Application

Establishment of Colorado Residency

An individual must have been domiciled in Colorado for one calendar year before he or she is entitled to in-state tuition. A domicile is a person's true, fixed and permanent home. Having a domicile in Colorado involves more than mere physical presence or "residence" in the state. In order to establish a domicile for tuition purposes, there must be 1) physical presence for at least 12 months within the state along with 2) demonstrated intent to make Colorado one’s permanent home. Intent is demonstrated by several kinds of connections with the state dated one year prior to the beginning of classes. Please contact the Program Administrator for more details.​​​​​​​​​​​​


MSMHA Program Computer Requirement:

The MSMHA program highly recommends that each student have a laptop computer with the following specifications:

• 64-bit dual core CPU (Intel Core i5 or equivalent)
• 8 GB RAM minimum (16 GB strongly recommended, especially for Mac computers)

Highly Recommended

• 64-bit quad core CPU (Intel Core i7 or equivalent)
• OpenGL-compatible graphics card (with at least 1 GB RAM)
• 256 GB (or larger) SSD drive (solid state drives are much faster than ordinary drives, but hold less data)​
