First-year and transfer students are required to attend New Coug Orientation. During orientation, you will discover the university’s mission, goals, values, and academic expectations; discuss academic policies, procedures, and programs; review costs, in terms of both dollars and personal commitment; and learn about valuable resources and campus-support services. You will leave the program registered for classes and ready to start your adventure as a Coug.
Before you register for orientation, accept your offer of admission and pay the $200 tuition deposit or request a deferral by connecting with your admission counselor. Please allow up to 48 hours for your account to update after accepting your offer to register for orientation. This fee may also be deferred upon registration. If you haven’t made your payment or are unsure, you can find this information in myWSU or, if you have any questions about your admission status, please call 1-888-GO-TO-WSU (1-888-468-6978).
Guests are required to find their own accommodations off campus. For a list of where to stay, please visit the Where to Stay page.
