I have decided to attend another college in the fall. Can I transfer to WSU in the future with my current admission status?

WSU welcomes students at any stage in their higher education to transfer from other colleges and universities. When you’re ready to begin your education here, you’ll need to reapply for your desired term. Admission to WSU will be evaluated at the time of application, based on your completed work.

We would be happy to assist in developing your transfer plan. For information regarding Transfer Credit, please visit our transfer page or contact your admission counselor. If you are unsure of your admission counselor, please email and provide your name, contact information and desired campus. Pullman students can find their counselor here.

I’ve been admitted to a WSU campus but would like to move my admission to the Global Campus.

At this time, we are evaluating the option for confirmed students to transfer from a physical campus to the WSU Global Campus. Because many majors are only offered on physical campuses, the Global Campus may not be the best option for all students.

You may be able to maintain your enrollment in your current campus and enroll in select online courses if they are available through the Global Campus.  Please contact your admission counselor or email to discuss your options. Pullman students can find their counselor here.
