I have received notice from WSU that I’ve been accepted. Now what?

  1. If you are pursuing an undergraduate degree, you will be asked to confirm your offer of admission to WSU by paying the $200 advance tuition deposit. The tuition deposit will be applied to your first semester’s tuition charges, and must be paid before you can register for classes. Here’s how to make your advance tuition deposit payment:
    1. Log in to your my.wsu.edu account.
    2.  From the applicant homepage, select the  Admissions  tile.
    3. Select the  Accept  button and then confirm that you accept.
    4. Select the Pay Tuition Deposit button and log in to Advance Pay with your student ID number and birthday (MMDD).
    5. Follow the instructions to pay the $200 advanced tuition/confirmation deposit to hold your spot. 
  2. You will receive a welcome message from the Global Campus. If you are pursuing an undergraduate degree, you will also receive an orientation email from your academic advisor, once he or she has reviewed your file and created your academic plan.
  3. If you have not already created your WSU network ID (NID), look for an email from the WSU Office of Admissions with instructions for creating your NID. The email should have arrived within two business days after you submitted your application to WSU.
  4. Your MS Office 365 @ WSU email account will be created for you within two business days of your confirmed admission. WSU staff and your professors will correspond with you only via your WSU email address, yourNID@wsu.edu. Using your network ID and password, log in to your WSU email account at office365.wsu.edu and check it often. Also take advantage of the additional Office365 a la carte products available to you.
  5. Familiarize yourself with myWSU, your secure WSU student portal. Go to my.wsu.edu and sign in with your WSU network ID and password.
    1. Start by making sure your contact information is accurate; select Profile, then review the information listed under Personal Details, Contact Details and Addresses.
    2. Check out the information available to you. myWSU is where students go to pay tuition, register for classes, plan for future semesters, and more.
  6. Students taking courses through the Global Campus need regular access to a desktop or laptop computer with stable Internet access. Because your computer is your connection to your courses—essentially the way you “go to class”—you also need to have a backup plan should your primary computer become unavailable. Check the Technology Requirements to be sure your computer is up to date, and review the information about protecting your computer on the Tech Support page.
  7. Browse for courses in the Schedules of Classes. Be sure to select the More Information link associated with the course to learn what materials are required. Many course information pages also provide links to syllabi near the bottom of the page. Please note: If information is not yet listed on the course information page, be sure to check back.
  8. Review the Academic Calendar to become familiar with critical deadlines. Select Global Campus and the applicable term to view the calendar.
  9. Peruse the WSU Global Campus blog, join us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter.
