Admission Counselors: Not Just for Students

WSU admission counselors crisscross the western U.S., visiting high schools and college fairs, meeting students, answering questions, and helping with the application and college decision process. Chances are an admission counselor has had a hand in your student’s contact with WSU at some point. Admissions counselors don’t only help students; they can help you—in addition to your student—with a wide range of questions related to the college decision.

Stretch your College Dollars with Scholarships

Washington State University (WSU) makes every effort to recognize its diverse student populations and understands college is an investment in students’ potential and future success. Scholarships are an excellent way to assist students in paying for their education.  These funds don’t have to be repaid and are basically “free money” for the student.
