Next Steps for Admitted Transfer Student

Transfer Next Steps

Congratulations on your admission to WSU Tri-Cities! We look forward to seeing you on campus soon. Before then, there are a few steps you need to take to confirm your admission and reserve your space at WSU Tri-Cities. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Confirm your admission and save your spot by paying the $200 non-refundable tuition deposit* (advanced payment on tuition). This will reserve your space at WSU. You’ll need to do this before you can sign up for orientation/registration. For assistance setting up your network ID and navigating myWSU, visit myWSU info.

*Ready to confirm your admission, but finances holding you back? We can help! Contact the Admissions Office for assistance.

After you confirm your admission, you can:

  1. Sign up for new student orientation as soon as possible after confirming your admission. All new students are required to attend new student orientation.
  2. Register for New Student Advising Session (MAPS). Majors and Academic Planning Sessions (MAPS) focus on educating new students about the advising process and academic resources. Students will register for classes at their MAP Session. Select your MAP Session when registering for new student orientation.
  3. Talk to an admission counselor about taking the online math placement exam and writing placement exam. Transfer students who do not have transferable college credit in Math and English may need to complete these exams.
  4. Send final transcripts and other paperwork. Send final transcripts from the college(s) you attended and/or currently attend.
  5. Sign into myWSU (WSU’s student information system) and review your personal to-do lists for financial aid and more.
