Next Steps

What to do next

Wondering what comes next? Here are some of the next steps you should take.

Making your decision

If you're looking for information to help you decide whether to come to WSU, try this:

  1. Sign up for the WSU On Facebook community app to see what other admitted students are talking about and ask your own questions.
  2. See our key contacts page for ways you can reach us and get all your questions answered.

Accepting your admission offer

When you're ready to accept your admission offer and get started at WSU, here's what you should do:

  1. Set up your WSU network ID.
  2. Confirm your admission by paying the $200 tuition deposit. This will reserve your space at WSU. You'll need to do this before you can apply for campus housing and sign up for orientation/registration.
  3. Sign up for Alive! orientation or Transfer Registration Days as soon as possible after confirming your admission. All new students must attend an orientation session to register for classes. The matriculation fee is $230 for students.  There are some grants available for those with financial need, please contact New Student Programs for more information.
  4. Apply for campus housing as soon as possible after confirming your admission. The sooner you apply for housing, the better your chances of getting your choice of residence. The housing deposit is $400 plus a $150 security deposit. Note: While freshmen are required to live on campus, transfer students may choose to live in campus housing or off-campus.
  5. Take the online math placement exam before attending orientation. Get started on this step early so you can take advantage of the 6-week online review.
  6. Take the writing placement exam. The exam can be taken online at any time, or as a pencil-and-paper test at your Alive! orientation session.
  7. Provide proof of immunization. You'll need to provide proof of measles (Rubeola) immunity before registering for classes. Forms and other information are available from WSU Health and Wellness Services.
  8. Sign in to zzusis (WSU's student information system) and check out your personal to-do lists for financial aid, registration, dining accounts, tuition, and more.
