The WUE Program represents hundreds of undergraduate programs outside of California. You may qualify to pay no more than 150 percent of that institution’s resident tuition rate. The average WUE Program savings per student is $9,160.

    SOU has gone permanently test-optional, therefore neither SAT or ACT test scores are required for admission to the university or merit-based scholarships. 
    Some incentives for students to choose SOU:
    • A student can apply for the Accelerated Baccalaureate Program, which allows them to graduate in as little as three years from SOU. With a renewable Merit Scholarship award, Acc Bacc students can further reduce their overall cost of a bachelor's degree as they save a year's worth of tuition and fees and more! 
    • If a student is admitted into the SOU Honors College Program, any merit scholarship they are awarded (based on HS GPA), will be automatically increased by $2,000 per year. For example, a Raider Scholar receiving a $5,000 Merit Scholarship would end up receiving an award package of $7,000 annually if they are in the Honors College.
