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!

Suggested courses for transfer students:

  • History 305, aka ROOTS, Roots of Contemporary Issues (a required course for most undergraduates).
  • University 304, a course designed to answer many questions about life here at WSU and proven to help students graduate at higher rates and with a better GPA.
  • Courses in your chosen major.

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
  • Great weather and tons of outdoor activities close at hand
  • 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 will begin 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.
