Once a student has accepted WSU’s offer of admission and has paid (or deferred) the $200 confirmation deposit, they should then apply for Housing, register for Alive! Summer Orientation, and take the Math Placement Exam.

Apply for Housing:

Students who have paid their $200 confirmation deposit for fall 2016 should apply for housing through the Housing website as soon as possible. All single undergraduate freshmen under 20 years of age are required to live in university approved housing for one academic year.

The housing application requires a $150 housing security deposit which cannot be deferred or waived. The application also requests a $400 advance housing payment which will be credited toward the overall housing and dining costs in the fall. Students who are applying for financial aid may have the $400 advance housing payment deferred until they receive aid by checking a box on the housing application.

Housing assignments are based upon the date students complete their housing application. In other words, the earlier they complete their housing application, the better chance they have for placement in one of their top choices. Housing will begin to make assignments in the next few weeks, so students should sign up as soon as possible! Students will be notified of housing assignments in June.

Register for Alive! Orientation:

All WSU Students are required to attend an orientation session before enrolling in classes. At Alive! students will receive academic advising, register for fall classes, and get better acquainted with campus services and facilities. Sessions are filling up quickly, so students who register early are more likely to get in to the session they want.

Take the Math Placement Exam:

WSU’s Math Placement Exam is available online for incoming students. Students with transferrable math credits from college coursework, Running Start, AP, or IB courses will automatically be placed into the next level math based on what they have already completed. These students are not required to take the Math Placement Exam unless they wish to take a math course that is higher than the one they qualify for through their transfer credit. More information can be found on the Math Placement Exam website.

Students must take their Math Placement Exam  at least 2 weeks before coming to their Alive! Orientation session as their score will be used to place them in a math course. If a student is not satisfied with their initial score, the exam may be retaken in-person either during their Alive! session or at another time on campus.
