The WSU application for admission for fall 2019 is now available. Encourage your students to apply today!
In order for a student’s application to be complete, they will need to 1) submit an on-line application, 2) request official transcripts from all colleges attended, 3) submit additional information requested by WSU. WSU does not require an admission essay, but will 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.
Some of the most important individuals in the college admission process are the regional admission counselors at WSU. By living in your communities, admission counselors are more accessible, and are more aware of local issues that may affect your school’s populations. To find which WSU representative serves your college, please visit the Find Your Counselor website.
WSU admission counselors are available to attend college fairs, admissions presentations, and personal visits to colleges.
