Summer Session

Current Students


If you are currently enrolled at any of the WSU campuses, then you do not need to apply for admission to Summer Session. Simply register for Summer Session courses on myWSU.

Registration for Summer 2024 courses begins on March 4, 2024, and is open through the beginning of each session. There are no advising holds for summer, but be sure to discuss any summer enrollment plans with your Academic Advisor.

If you have recently been admitted for the fall semester and would like to take summer courses, simply contact the Office of Admissions and request that your admission be back-dated to include Summer Session. Once you have been back-dated for summer, you may log into your myWSU account to register for courses. Be sure to speak with an Academic Advisor before enrolling.

Are you planning to transfer to WSU Tri-Cities for the fall semester? Why not come early for a summer course or two? The first Summer Session courses begin in early May. However, students transferring from schools on a quarter system usually register for WSU Tri-Cities summer courses scheduled during our Late 6-Week session, which begins mid-June. An Admissions Counselor will be happy to help you with your application.

Summer Educational Benefit Request: Submit this online form to request enrollment using the WSU employee tuition waiver for Summer. For more detailed information on allowed courses and employee eligibility, please visit the Registrar’s Employee Tuition Waiver page, as well as the Summer Educational Benefits page of the Business Policies and Procedures Manual.

Tuition and Fees

There is no out-of-state tuition rate for the summer semester!

Undergraduate Tuition: $577.75/credit

Graduate Tuition$662.70/credit

Auditing a Course: Unlike fall and spring courses, students are required to pay full tuition and fees when auditing a course during the Summer Session.

Tuition is due on the first day of class; assessment of late fees for unpaid tuition will begin on the dates listed under Summer Session Dates & Deadlines. Fees are cumulative; accounts will be assessed a fee on each deadline that the balance remains unpaid.


Withdrawing from the current term will remove all of your courses for the current semester. This includes any classes taken concurrently on multiple WSU campuses and through Global Campus.

If you submit a term withdrawal AFTER the drop without penalty deadline, all tuition and fees will still be owed.

If done BEFORE the drop without penalty deadline, there will be a 100% refund of tuition and fees.

There is no cancellation fee for the summer semester.

Refund Policy

Refunds for classes only occur if a class is dropped BEFORE the drop without penalty deadline.

Financial Aid

In order to be considered for Financial Aid, you must:

  1. Submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2023-2024 school year. Your FAFSA must be received and processed by WSU by July 19.
  2. Be admitted to WSU as a degree-seeking student.
  3. Register for at least 6 credits (undergraduate students) or at least 3 credits (graduate students).

NOTE: Continuing students must be making satisfactory academic progress (SAP) toward completion of a degree. Click here for the complete SAP policy.

Typically, federal financial aid for summer consists of grants and loans that a student may have qualified for during the academic year, but did not accept or use.

NOTE: Some students may experience a delay in delivery of their summer financial aid until spring semester grades are posted to their transcripts and verified for satisfactory progress.
