You’re considered a freshman if you’re applying to WSU for the academic year immediately after graduating from high school (even if you’re in Running Start) or you haven’t attended college since high school graduation.
You’re considered a transfer student if you attended an accredited college or university after your high school graduation, but that doesn’t include the summer immediately following your graduation.
The Running Start program allows qualifying high school juniors and seniors to attend classes on the WSU Tri Cities campus and receive both high school and college credit simultaneously.
We partner with all Mid-Columbia high schools, along with surrounding school districts, including Prosser, Connell, Columbia, Kahlotus, Finley, Kiona-Benton, Omak and Grandview.
The Bridges Program is for students who plan to start their education at Columbia Basin College (CBC) and finish at Washington State University Tri-Cities. This program is intended for students who have earned less than 45 quarter credits at CBC with a 2.5 or higher cumulative GPA.
