Students meet with an admissions advisor from Winona State University to plan what's possible. During COVID-19 such meetings are taking place virtually.


Are you applying to Winona State University-Rochester as a transfer student? Want to return to college to complete your bachelor’s degree? Looking to pursue an advanced degree? Winona State University is ready to help you on every step of your journey.

Meet What’s Possible with Winona State Wednesdays

COVID-19 may have changed the ways that we connect with you, but it has not changed how important that connection is. The traditional campus visit and in-person college fairs remain on hold, but that doesn’t mean your education has to wait. We know that your future is essential. That’s why we are providing a full range of virtual experiences through the spring to help you pursue your goals without any further interruption.

Meet what’s possible with Winona State Wednesdays, a new weekly live video series hosted by Sammie Eckerson, Recruitment and Admissions Advisor for WSU-Rochester and Graduate Studies. Sammie will provide a step-by-step guide to joining the Winona State University campus community.

We will give you a quick and comprehensive overview of exactly what you can expect during the process, from applying, to finding scholarships, to transferring credits, to registering for classes, to accessing the support services that will help you succeed in your studies.

Join Sammie on the WSU-Rochester Facebook page most Wednesdays at Noon for this live video event. Check out the full schedule of Winona State Wednesdays online events below.
