Students are considered transfer students for admission purposes if they have attended college after the summer following high school graduation. Running Start students apply as a freshman.
1. FILL OUT THE TRANSFER APPLICATION
Admission to WSU is offered to qualified students on a first-come basis. Applications completed by the priority application date of January 31 will receive first consideration. Applications received after January 31 will be reviewed on a space available basis. Interested transfer students are encouraged to apply at any time.
2. REQUEST TRANSCRIPTS FROM ALL COLLEGES ATTENDED
If a student has less than a full year of college credit to transfer, we may ask that high school transcript (or G.E.D.) be sent to WSU.
Transcripts and test scores must be sent directly from the school or testing agency to WSU via postal mail, fax, or an accepted documentation service such as Parchment, National Student Clearinghouse, or eScrip-Safe. Please note, we cannot accept official transcripts sent via email.

As of March 2021, WSU no longer requires students to submit SAT/ACT test scores as part of the application process.
3. SUBMIT ADDITIONAL MATERIALS
When we receive your application, the application fee or waiver request, and official transcripts from the colleges attended, the Office of Admissions will review applications and all supporting materials. During our review, we will determine the total number of transferable college credits, cumulative GPA in the transferable work, and which University common requirements (UCORE) completed. Courses that are applicable to the chosen major will be evaluated by the department students are planning to major in.
Once we have completed our review, we will notify students of the admission decision by letter.
Students can find more information and check their application status through myWSU, our secure online portal.
