For high school juniors and undecided seniors

In light of recent developments pertaining to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), and to best protect our campus and regional community, WSU Tri-Cities has made the difficult decision to cancel the upcoming College Planning Day on Wednesday, March 18th.

This was certainly not an easy decision, and we apologize for any inconvenience this will cause. We look forward to hosting you all next year for this event.

Please also note that while this event has been canceled this year, WSU Tri-Cities campus services, including the admissions office, is still functioning as normal. WSU Tri-Cities admissions recruiters are working regular hours and are still available to meet with students in-person and through virtual appointments. We are still conducting individual campus tours by appointment. As always, we’re available by email at or phone at 509-372-7250.

Please contact us if you’d like to schedule a personalized campus tour or groups visit.
