WSU Student Financial Services (SFS) is excited to announce a revision to our most popular scholarships for incoming students. First, we are extending the University Achievement Award (UAA) to more students by adjusting the GPA and SAT/ACT requirements Washington residents must meet.  More students are now eligible to receive the UAA valued at $4,000 ($2,000 per year for two years). If your student is a Washington resident and was not offered the UAA in his or her admission offer letter, check the requirements here to see if he or she now qualifies:

Additionally, we are increasing the value of the Cougar Academic Award (CAA), WSU’s equivalent of the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE), for out-of-state students to $44,000 ($11,000 per year for four years)! The GPA and SAT/ACT requirements are detailed here:

New transfer students may be eligible to receive the Crimson Transfer Award (CTA).  The CTA is awarded to domestic resident and non-resident transfer students with a minimum transfer GPA of 3.2 and at least 27 semester or 40 quarter credits of transferable work.  Note, students who are taking college courses while in high school are not considered transfer students for admission purposes, and may be eligible for the UAA or CAA instead of the CTA.  For more on the CTA, visit

Students who qualify for the new awards will be notified by SFS beginning this week. To find out if they are eligible for the new scholarships, students can visit the UAA eligibility calculator (for Washington residents) or the CAA eligibility calculator (for out-of-state students).
