What majors are available at WSU?
Washington State University offers more than 200 fields of study that can contribute to majors, minors, or courses of study. At last count, there were more than 85 undergraduate majors possible at WSU.
What do I need to be admitted?
That depends on whether you are:
- A freshman coming from high school
- A transfer student
- An international student
- A graduate student
What is the application deadline?
For application deadlines and a full list of important dates, see the dates and deadlines page.
All deadlines are "postmarked by" dates (not received-by dates).
Do I have to be accepted to WSU before I can apply for a scholarship?
No. Apply for scholarships at the same time you apply for admission to the University. (Or after, if you like--just be sure to apply before the deadline.) You will need a WSU ID number in order to access the scholarship application form; your WSU ID will automatically be emailed to you when you submit your admission application.
For more info on how to fill out your application, see our scholarships tip sheet.
What address should I send transcripts to?
Please send transcripts (and all other mailable application materials) to:
Office of Admissions
370 Lighty Student Services Bldg
Washington State University
PO Box 641067
Pullman, WA 99164-1067
How do I know if you received my transcripts?
The Office of Admissions will mail you a letter if a specific document is needed or if we haven't received your transcripts.
If you receive a letter from WSU asking for an official transcript, but you believe you had them sent, you should call and confirm whether we have or have not received the transcript. (Phone # and contact information will be in our letter to you.)
If I have a 2.5 transfer GPA, does that mean that I'm automatically admitted?
No. Admission is based on your academic record and performance, and also depends on available space.
Do you need transcripts from every school I've attended?
Yes. Request every school you've attended (high school or college) to send a final official transcript to WSU, no matter when you last attended.
Why does WSU require a final official transcript?
We use the final transcript to verify the last term you attended school and ensure that we've given you all the credit that's available to you.
In addition, the transcript shows your GPA at that school and helps establish your academic eligibility to transfer to WSU.
How do I know when you've received my application?
- When you submit your application, we'll automatically send you a confirmation email acknowledging receipt of your application. The email also gives you a WSU Student ID number (which you'll need if you fill out a scholarship application) and a confirmation number for the application fee charged to your credit card.
- If you applied by mail, you'll receive a letter from the admissions office acknowledging receipt of your application, usually within a week to ten days.
How do I qualify for financial aid?
To see if you qualify for financial aid, submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by February 15.
All colleges use the FAFSA to determine your eligibility for financial aid. Completing the FAFSA will help you get state and federal aid, and will help WSU consider you for additional aid — for instance, some scholarships consider financial need among their award criteria.
Complete both the WSU scholarship application and the FAFSA to ensure that you're considered for the maximum amount of financial assistance.
