Common questions and answers
Who can attend this event?
Out-of-state undergraduate students who have been accepted for the Fall 2017 semester may attend this Experience event. Out-of-state students can attend any Experience WSU session, however, this session is exclusively for students from outside Washington state. Students who are former WSU students returning or students who are currently enrolled at a WSU campus (Pullman, Vancouver, Tri-Cities, Global, Everett, or Spokane) who may submit a change of campus form are NOT eligible to attend this event. This event is designed for those who are still making up their minds about enrolling at the Pullman campus. If you have already decided to attend WSU, your next steps are to pay your deposit and sign up for an Alive! orientation and registration session.

It is very strongly discouraged to make any type of travel arrangements (especially purchasing flights) prior to receiving an official confirmation email after registering for the program. Visitation Programs will not make any special accommodations for families who are not registered but may have already purchased flights. If you are unsure your registration was submitted or have not received a confirmation email, please contact Visitation Programs.
