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.
A limited number of WRGP slots are awarded for each incoming class of students.
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.
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.
