Next Steps

It’s offical, you’re a Coug!

We are excited to see you’ve confirmed your admissions to WSU Tri-Cities!

Questions?
The Office of Admissions has answers. Call 509-372-7250 or email tricities.admissions@wsu.edu.

You are now able to complete the following steps:

1. REGISTER FOR YOUR NEW STUDENT EXPERIENCE EVENTS

All new freshman and transfer students are required to register for the New Student Experience. Two programs, one registration form! Your undergraduate advising session kicks off your new student experience. At your advising session, you will learn about the advising process, academic resources, and register for classes. New Student Orientation (NSO) will be your opportunity to learn valuable resources to assist in your transition to the campus community.

Note: Registration will open in October for incoming spring semester students and in March 2018 for incoming fall semester students.

2. TAKE PLACEMENT EXAMS BEFORE ATTENDING YOUR UNDERGRADUATE ADVISING SESSION

Talk to your admission counselor about taking the online math placement exam and the writing placement exam. If you have transferable college credit in math and English, you might not need to take these so check with your counselor!

Note: It is important to complete your placement exams as it may prevent enrollment in math, English and science courses.

3. SEND FINAL TRANSCRIPTS, EXAMS AND OTHER PAPERWORK

Send final transcripts from the high school or college/university you attended and/or currently attend. Receive college credit by sending AP/IB/AICE/CLEP scores.

4. REVIEW YOUR PERSONAL TO-DO LISTS FOR FINANCIAL AID

Sign in to myWSU (WSU’s student information system) and review your personal to-do lists for financial aid, orientation, and more.

4. ACTIVATE YOUR OFFICIAL WSU E-MAIL ACCOUNT

Every WSU student has an official WSU e-mail address that is available to them. People at WSU will use this official WSU e-mail address to correspond with you.

Once accepted to WSU and after making your advance payment on tuition you will receive an email notification regarding the creation of your WSU student email account. This notification should arrive within two business days of making your advance payment and will contain your new e-mail address and provide instructions for activating your WSU student e-mail account.

Note: It is important to activate your WSU e-mail account as soon as possible. This e-mail address will automatically be set as your primary e-mail account. You won’t want to miss out on important communication!
