Post Baccalaureate

Coming back to college?

You’re considered a post-bachelor’s degree student for admission purposes if you have already earned a bachelor’s degree.

How to apply

Note: We are no longer accepting online freshman and transfer applications for Spring 2019.

  • Complete the post-bachelor’s admission application. We prefer the online application, but we also accept a paper application (PDF).
  • Request official transcripts from all colleges you have attended. If your coursework at your current college isn’t complete, you’ll need to have a copy of your final transcript sent to WSU.

Transcripts must be sent directly from the school to WSU via secure electronic document transfer, fax, or mail. Email is not accepted.
