College diversity programs that pay for high-achieving high school seniors – who are usually low-income, first-generation or students of color – to visit campus, give teens who can't afford to travel out of state for a college tour the opportunity to try the college experience.
Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) And Fly in Programs
WUE stands for Western Undergraduate Exchange. Through WUE, students in Western states
may enroll to any of the participating two-year and four-year public college programs at a reduced tuition level: up to 150 percent of the institution’s regular resident tuition. New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and Hawaii are only a few of the participating states. In all cases, WUE tuition is considerably less than nonresident tuition.

Diversity Fly-in Programs Make Campus Visits Accessible
The programs, typically called "fly-in" or multicultural programs, are two- to three-day college tours for prospective or admitted students from underrepresented backgrounds. Some schools invite all students to apply but give preference to low-income students.
