For Out-of-State Students

We’re redrawing the map for what it means to be a student at the College at Wise.

If you live outside Virginia, you may be eligible for a significant reduction on out-of-state tuition through our Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) Initiative. Find out if you are eligible by checking if your county is in the ARC region.

All students, no matter where they live, can apply for generous scholarships and financial aid. Students graduate from the College at Wise with little to no student debt — part of our commitment to setting you up for success in your career and your life after college.
