Once your student is admitted, encourage them to complete the next steps by paying the $200 non-refundable confirmation deposit in myWSU so they can apply for Housing, register for Alive! Summer Orientation or Transfer Alive!, and take the Math Placement Exam (which opens in April).
Apply for Housing:
Students who have paid their $200 confirmation deposit for fall 2017 can apply for housing
through the Housing website. The housing application requires a $150 housing deposit and a $400 advance housing payment which will be credited toward their overall housing and dining costs in the fall. Students who are applying for financial aid may have the advanced housing payment deferred until they receive aid; however, the housing deposit is not deferrable.
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 residence hall choices. Housing assignments come out in June.
WSU has 17 residence halls to choose from, with a variety of room styles and amenities. For more information about housing options, including virtual tours and videos showcasing the residence halls, please visit housing.wsu.edu.
Register for Alive! Orientation:
All WSU Students are required to attend an orientation session before enrolling in classes. At Alive! and Transfer Alive! students will receive academic advising, register for fall classes and get better acquainted with campus services and facilities. Students who register early are more likely to get into the session they want.
Take the Math Placement Exam:
Math Placement Exam is offered completely online and is available to students to take beginning in April. If a student is not satisfied with their initial score, the exam may be retaken in person during Alive!. Students with transferrable math credits (i.e. 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.
