Western Professional Student Exchange Program
The Professional Student Exchange Program (PSEP) allows students in specific western states and territories to enroll in selected out-of-state professional healthcare programs and pay reduced tuition.
Typically, a state will support its residents through PSEP in fields of study when a state-funded program is not available to its residents.
Students in Western states that are planning to attend healthcare professional schools, including:
- Allopathic and osteopathic medicine
- Occupational therapy
- Physical therapy
- Physician assistant
A chart showing fields and eligible states is provided on the program website.
Reduced tuition at out-of-state schools. Depending on the field of study and place of enrollment, a PSEP student can save between $8,000 and $32,000 per academic year.
Prospective students apply directly to the programs in which they wish to enroll. Applications should be completed by October 15 the year before expected enrollment, and students must work with their home state certifying officer to become certified so that they can be considered for PSEP support.
