Support Services

Connect, Collaborate, Care

WSU Tri-Cities is committed to supporting all students so they can be successful in their academic career. Our staff understands and respects that students are coming to us with different life experiences. Whether you are raising a family, working full-time, changing your career, or returning to school after taking time off, you will find services and resources to help you meet your goals.

WSU Tri-Cities takes a coordinated care approach to provide academic and social support to students. We encourage the campus community to share concerns about about a student’s emotional or psychological well-being, physical health, or academic performance. A Student Care Team, composed of staff from from Academic Affairs and Student Affairs, evaluate concerns, determine a response, and implement an intervention plan to assist students thrive despite challenges in and out of the classroom.

Student Services staff also work closely with student leaders to develop programs and provide resources to meet student need and interests.

ASWSUTC Technology Access Equity Program
(laptop loan program)

The Technology Access Equity Program at WSU Tri-Cities helps students who are unable to purchase their own computer, or access a computer that meets their educational needs. Students are able to rent out a computer for one semester at a time, but may be renewed for future semesters if there is still a demonstrated need.

This program wouldn’t be possible without the support of the Associated Student of Washington State University Tri-Cities. The goal of the program is help students find access to technology to support their educational success.

To rent a laptop, students must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credit hours and be fee-paying students. Students must demonstrate a need or hardship to have a laptop. The Student Hardship Committee will review all requests.

It will be the responsibility of the student renting the computer to return the computer in original condition. All technology support must go through information technology at the WSU Tri-Cities campus.
