Understanding the WSU catalog

The university’s catalog is the official document you will use throughout your college career, that shows university rules and regulations, outlines degree requirements and shows you example 4 year class plans. This also allows you to view other majors and degrees, if you are undecided or exploring other major options. Reviewing your degree outline in the catalog, may clear up questions you might have after viewing the advisement report/degree audit.

This is a WSU-wide catalog, which means it includes majors and degrees from all WSU campuses. Be sure you know which degrees WSU Tri-Cities offers: tricities.wsu.edu/academics/
