Important WSU Requirements
Although you can easily take care of graduation requirements after you enroll, you may want to prepare in advance for these two WSU requirements:
- Writing Portfolio: All WSU students are required to complete a writing portfolio after reaching 60 credits, which is usually during your junior year.
Your writing portfolio consists of two parts:
A packet containing two samples of original, graded writing from two different college courses
A two-part impromptu timed essay
For this reason, you should keep all the papers you write for your college courses. You can also use papers written for classes at your previous college in your portfolio packet.
For more information, see the junior writing portfolio guidelines.
- Admission to Your Majors: Most WSU students are advised by the college in which they plan to major. Until they select a major, deciding students are advised in the College of Arts and Sciences. Students can generally take care of prerequisites and be admitted to a major sometime in their sophomore year.
In some programs at WSU, you need to be admitted to your major before you can take upper-level courses. With advance planning, you may be able to meet these departmental requirements before transferring.
