Transferring to WSU Tri-Cities

Apply now for 2018!

Now is the time to make the transition to WSU Tri-Cities. We’ll help take the guesswork out of transferring. Request an unofficial evaluation of how your credits transfer to WSU. Simply send us a copy of your unofficial transcripts and we will guide you through the transferring process.

You’re considered a transfer for admissions purposes if you have attended college since graduating from high school (not including the summer immediately following high school graduation.)

If all your college work was done in high school, use the freshman application.

We require a minimum of a 2.50 transfer GPA. If your transfer GPA is less than a 2.50, then we may request additional material from you.

Next Steps

Complete the application! We prefer the online application, but you can also print a copy of the admission application and return it to our office.


Request official transcripts from all the colleges or universities you have attended. Note that we will need transcripts even if the credit does not transfer.

Transcripts must be sent directly from the school to WSU:

Washington State University Tri-Cities
Office of Admissions 2710 Crimson Way
Richland, WA 99354-1671

Please note: When ordering an electronic transcript from a school that partners with e-Script Safe, National Student Clearinghouse or Parchment, DO NOT enter an email address. The partner agency will send us your transcript directly.

If your school does not partner with one of the listed agencies, request that your school mail a sealed official transcript to the address above.


If you have less than a full year of college credit to transfer, we may ask you to also have your high school transcript (or GED) and test scores (SAT or ACT) sent to WSU.
