Are you ready to make the decision to attend WSU? To confirm your seat in the Class of 2017 entering in fall 2013, students must complete the steps outlined below:
Step One: Submit Admissions Response Form within 30 days of receiving your official acceptance letter. Please note that completing this form does not secure your enrollment.

College Credit Evaluation Process: Evaluation of previous college coursework for transfer credit is completed when a student pays their enrollment deposit. Students are emailed a copy of their degree audit. Please note that not all major-specific courses are allocated at the time of this audit as department chair approval is needed in some instances. If you have questions regarding your degree audit, please contact email@example.com.
