Are you planning to transfer to WSU Tri-Cities in Fall 2018? Why not come early for a summer course or two? The first summer session courses begin in early May, but students transferring from schools on the quarter system usually register for WSU Tri-Cities courses beginning in the Late 6-Week session of summer which will begin in mid-June. An Admissions Counselor will be happy to help you with your application.
An eligible individual may enroll in academic courses during Summer Session without paying regular tuition on a space-available basis. A limited number of additional students are accepted if the class can be taught without incurring additional costs. Please be aware tuition paying students are given priority.
Individuals must submit a Summer Educational Benefits Request form to the Campus Registrar’s office in Floyd 269 by 5 p.m. on the first day of class.
If you are not enrolled in the previous spring term, you must apply for admission to Summer Session by completing a non-degree application..
A civil service employee holding a half-time or greater appointment and having permanent status by the first day of class which he or she wants to take.
A civil service employee on a trial service appointment meeting the above criteria.
A faculty or administrative professional employee holding a half-time or greater appointment.
An employee covered by a collective bargaining unit agreement is eligible on the same basis as a civil service employee unless otherwise defined by the terms of the applicable bargaining unit contract.
The benefit may not be used for the following types of courses:
Tutorials, private lessons, or practicums
Center for Distance and Professional Education (CDPE) degree classes
WSU Online classes
Independent study, including courses numbered 499, 600, 700, 702, and 800
Tuition and Fees
NOTE: Summer 2018 tuition rates have not been finalized. All information is for Summer 2017 – check back in the spring for more information.
There is no out-of-state tuition rate in the summer!
Auditing a Course: Unlike fall and spring courses, students are required to pay full tuition and fees when auditing a course during Summer Session.
Tuition is due one the first day of class; assessment of late fees for unpaid tuition will begin on the dates listed. Fees are cumulative; accounts will be assessed a fee on each deadline that the balance remains unpaid.
Undergraduates need to be enrolled in at least six credits; graduate students need to be enrolled in at least three credits. Students will be notified of their financial aid eligibility within 3 days of registering for the minimum number of credits.
NOTE: Continuing students must be making satisfactory academic progress (SAP) toward completion of a degree. For the complete SAP policy, please refer to the Financial Aid website.
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.
