Out-of-State Destination

A special event for out-of-state students who have been admitted to WSU

March 27-29, 2015

Learn more about WSU and receive a $1,000 scholarship

The Out-of-State Destination event is full. You're welcome to sign up for the waitlist. If a space becomes available, we'll let you know.

This two-day event — exclusively for out-of-state students — is your chance to get hands-on experience at Washington State University and learn more about its excellent academics, people, and campus life.

You'll take part in an academic workshop of your choice, tour our beautiful campus, meet current students and faculty, and check out our close-knit residential campus life. You'll go home knowing what our distinctive "Cougar Spirit" feels like, and why we brag about our university's community.

Every student who attends the event will be awarded a  $1,000 scholarship, renewable for three additional years (one additional year for transfer students).

About the Out-of-State Destination event

Registration is free. It also includes two nights of free lodging for you and up to three guests.

Every student who attends this event will receive a renewable $1,000 scholarship to WSU.

To receive the scholarship award, you must attend the March 27-29 Destination event and enroll full time at WSU for fall semester 2015. National Merit Semi-finalists may not combine this award with the National Merit WSU scholarship

This package is not available on any other Destination WSU date.

If you are unable to attend Out-of-State Destination on March 27-28, 2015, you may consider attending our regular Destination WSU events. Please note, however, that while these events do include the scholarship, they DO NOT include free lodging and meals.
