Out-of-State Destination

Out-of-State Destination

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

Spring 2016

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

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 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 entire Out-of-State Destination event and enroll full time at WSU for the following fall semester. 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, 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.

Is it worth the time? You bet!

"The visit I had to WSU was amazing! Though at first I was a bit wary of the small town I quickly grew fond of it, the campus, and the people! "

"Nice event overall, very grateful WSU picked up the tab on hotel and meals. I picked my college nearly sight unseen, but I had full scholarship to attend...going to school for 'free' always makes choice easier."

"Very impressed with how well organized this event was. The school definitely knows how to put it's best foot forward and make parents feel good about sending their child to this school even with it being so far from home. Glad I attended. Put my husband at ease about sending daughter there and"
