You’re also considered a freshman if you haven’t attended college since high school graduation. Your age also affects how you apply, so if you’re 25 or older, check out the adult application process.

If you earned college credit while in high school, use the transfer equivalency database to see how your courses match up with WSU equivalencies and find out which courses you should be taking to meet your WSU graduation requirements.
If your transfer courses were taken on a quarter system, you’ll need to convert them to semester credits to see how your credit hours match WSU requirements. Simply multiply your quarter credit hours by .67 to determine how many semester credits you’ll receive. Using this equation, 5 quarter credits would convert to 3.35 semester credits.
Washington community colleges offer their courses on the quarter system and WSU Tri-Cities is on the semester system. Transferring your credit from quarter to semester is easy! Simply multiply your credit hours by .66 to determine how many semester credits you’ll receive.
