About the award
In order to qualify for the visit award through the Experience WSU event, students must be registered, attend, and participate in all components of the event. The Experience WSU visit award cannot be awarded to students receiving the Distinguished Regents Award, National Merit Semifinalist Award and to students who will have other allowable tuition waivers or payments that cover the value of full tuition. If you are a National Merit Semifinalist or Distinguished Regents awardee, please consider registering to attend Future Cougars of Distinction as the visitation award is available to you for this specific program.
Space is limited at the Experience WSU programs and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.
Getting the Award
Student Financial Services will post the visit award to the student’s account within a month after the event and will send an email communication confirming the award has been posted (if you attended the December Experience WSU event your waiver will not be posted until the spring). If you do not see that your award has posted after three weeks please contact the Visitation Office to confirm they have record of your attendance and they will follow up with Student Financial Services to ensure your award is posted. Please note that the visit award cannot be deferred to future terms.
If you can’t attend
If you can’t attend the entire event, you won’t be eligible for the Experience WSU waiver — but that’s not the end of the story. Filling out the WSU scholarship application means you’ll automatically be considered for hundreds of other scholarships from WSU. There are also many other opportunities to visit campus throughout the year. See our student visits site for more information.
