Summer Session for Transfer Students


main-4b main-5 main-6b







Are you transferring to WSU to start classes in the fall?  You could start even earlier! Summer courses are available for transfer students — we just need to activate you for an earlier term. Contact us to help.

Summer is a great time to get familiar with campus, make friends, have fun, get you on track with your coursework, and put yourself on the path to success as a WSU Cougar!


Advantages of Summer Session:

  • Earlier access to advising and classes
  • Evening events and activities
  • New friends and acquaintances
  • Access to tutoring and other great on-campus resources
  • Time to focusing on just one or two difficult courses
  • Great weather and tons of outdoor activities close at hand

Suggested courses for transfer students:

  • History 305 (aka ROOTS) Roots of Contemporary Issues (a required course for most undergraduates). Check with your advisor. Learn more
  • Any Math or English course required for your major.
  • Courses that fulfill the UCORE Diversity [DIVR] requirement.
  • Courses in your chosen major.
  • The first summer session courses begin in early May, but students transferring from schools on the quarter system usually register for WSU Pullman courses beginning in the late 6-week session of summer which begins mid-June.

Holds often prevent summer registration. Check for these common barriers on your student account:

  • Health & Wellness Measles Vaccination:  Contact H&W Services at 509-335-3575
  • Payment Owed:  Contact Student Accounts at 509-335-9653

If you are admitted for the fall term but would like to start earlier by enrolling in Summer Session, contact the Summer Session office at 509-335-2238. We’ll need to make a few changes to your student account before you’ll be able to register for summer classes.
