You may have a lot of questions running through your mind right now.

How will admissions decisions work now? 

When can I visit campus in-person? How can I register for classes? 

When can I get my WSU laptop? 

What about freshmen orientation? 

What is going to happen for fall semester?

While we don’t have all the answers, the WSU Admissions Team has been regularly meeting virtually to discuss these questions, too.

We’re thinking about you. We’re concerned with you. We’re here for you.

We know spring is a time when many of you choose to visit college campuses, whether to decide between your top choices or embark on your college search journey.

It’s a huge bummer that WSU had to cancel all in-person appointments, campus visits, and prospective student visits at this time.

However, WSU is still available to you to explore and experience our campus in a virtual format.

Although it’s probably not how you pictured your college search process taking place, we hope you find these tools useful.


Have a Q&A Session with a Counselor

We invite you to join us, the Admissions Counselors, in the Ask-Me-Anything Admissions Zoom Room that is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Just Zoom on in, and ask any and all WSU questions–no appointment needed!

If you prefer to chat with your personal admissions counselor, set up an individual appointment at a time that works for you.
