We’re here to help you get a great start at WSU
Nationally and at WSU, students who attend an orientation program are more likely to complete a college degree than those who do not. So, because we want you to have the best possible chance of success, we’ve designed orientation programs to help every new Coug hit the ground running in their first semester.
CHOOSE YOUR ORIENTATION SESSION
All new students must attend an orientation program to enroll for their first semester of classes. At your orientation program, you’ll meet with an advisor, register for classes, get familiar with campus, and find resources that will help you create an amazing experience at WSU.
Coming to orientation was very reassuring. It showed me I wouldn’t be in this all on my own. Connecting with my orientation group made me feel like I already had some friends coming in.
