Registration is Open!

Orientation for Fall 2016 is on Friday, August 19, 2016 and mandatory for all new students (freshman & transfer). Please select one of the links below to register.

Prepare yourself for the fall semester by joining the campus community for a day of fun, learning about academic expectations, student resources, and what to expect as a student at WSU Tri-Cities.

Orientation is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided.

New students are also required to attend a group advising session prior to orientation. Incoming freshmen have the opportunity to be registered for their first semester by the end of June! Benefits to registering for classes early is you will get into the required classes for your academic major, and you have the entire summer to enjoy!

Please indicate below which advising session you would like to attend. During these two hour group advising sessions you will learn vital information that will lead to a positive academic advisement experience, meet with professionals from their academic college and know what classes you will be taking in the fall. There is no cost to the advising session. Once you have registered more information will be emailed to confirm your attendance.

There is a $100 orientation fee that covers the cost of:
– Meals
– T-shirt
– Materials
– Peer mentor for the semester
– First year experience programs to assist with your transition during the fall semester
– and other giveaways!

This fee will be added to your student account and will be included in your tuition and fees for spring semester. If you’d like to pay the fee before Orientation, contact Student Accounts at 509-372-7498.
