Renewal Application Process: Students accepted into the WICHE Loan-for-Service Program (also known as the Professional Student Exchange Program) are required to complete the renewal application to secure funding each year. 


This is a service-based program, which requires a maximum of a three (3) year commitment to work full-time in the state of New Mexico.  For educational programs less than three (3) years, there will be one year of service required for each year of funding.


A complete application packet includes the following:


· Renewal Application (completed in full)

· Copy of Driver’s License

· Unofficial academic transcripts: Submit your college academic transcript from the professional school you are currently attending to verify that you are making satisfactory academic progress.


Award Amounts: WICHE determines the annual support fees for each educational program. Each student is required to sign a contract agreeing to repay the support fees if they do not return to New Mexico to provide service after graduation. 


It is important to note that the support fee is paid directly to your institution. If you enroll in a public institution, you will be charged resident tuition in exchange for the support fee. If you enroll in a private institution, you will pay the balance of full private tuition minus your support fee. 


The application and all supporting documents must be submitted by 5:00PM on July 1, 2024. Mailed, Faxed, Dropped-off applications will NOT be accepted. Once the application is received, no additional documents may be added to the packet. 

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
