For a student’s application to be considered for admission, they will need to 1) submit an online application, 2) submit a copy of their high school transcript and 3) submit official ACT or SAT scores. After our office receives all required portions of their application, we will review the student’s file. WSU does not require an admission essay, but may request information from students on an as-needed basis. The application fee remains $50 and as always, students with financial need may request a fee waiver. The fee waiver request is located at the end of our online admission application form on the payment page.

Students can upload a copy of their high school transcript while submitting their admission application, or upload a copy of their high school transcript via the secure student portal in their myWSU account.

Official transcripts can still be sent via an accepted documentation service such as Parchment, National Student Clearinghouse, Scribbles, or eScrip-Safe—OR—by mail to:

Office of Admissions
Washington State University
Lighty Student Services 370
PO Box 641067
Pullman, WA 99164-1067

Washington State University does not accept transcripts through email.

Regardless of the method your students chose for the INITIAL review, please only send ONE transcript.  Multiple copies slow the review process.

Official test scores must be sent directly from the testing agency. All Campuses use the same code for the SAT (4705) and the ACT (4482).

If your students have earned college credit, ask all colleges to send official transcripts to WSU.

If you have questions, please contact your WSU admission counselor.

Please note, January 31, 2020 is the admission application priority date. WSU will, however, continue to accept applications after that date, as space allows.


After graduation, counselors or school officials must submit official transcripts.

Simply go to our upload site exclusively for high school officials. Please contact the WSU Office of Admissions if you need the password. (Please don’t share this information with parents or students. Transcripts must come directly from school officials.) There we will ask you to provide:  your name, title, email address, and school name. After you do that, you can simply upload an entire file of transcripts or attach individual transcripts.
