Academic Achievement Awards

Be rewarded for your academic achievement

If you have good grades and test scores, you could receive an award to help you pay your tuition. These merit-based awards are automatically awarded and qualified students are notified upon their offer of admission to WSU Tri-Cities.

The Washington State University Tri-Cities Achievement Awards are based on a combination of your grade point average (GPA) and SAT/ACT test scores OR, if you’re a transfer student, your college cumulative GPA. To be eligible students must be Washington state residents entering the WSU Tri-Cities campus as a freshman or as a transfer student. Transfer students must be transferring from a Washington state college or university and have earned 27 semester or 40 quarter credit hours at the time of transferring.

Whether you are eligible for this particular award or not, be sure to also fill out the scholarship application when you apply for admission. It gives you the opportunity to be considered for more WSU Tri-Cities scholarship programs.
