How to apply:

  • Look at the deadlines.

  • Confirm that the course(s) you wish to take is offered through Global Campus, then check if the course has a prerequisite, or requires approval. Here’s how:
    • Go to the Schedules of Classes (schedules.wsu.edu).
    • Select the link for the Global Campus term you wish to apply for. New term information is available approximately four weeks prior to the start of registration.
    • Find the course you wish to take by selecting a prefix. If the course is offered through Global Campus that term, you’ll see it listed.
    • Select the More Information link to see the course information page.
      • Check the Prerequisites section for any prerequisites.
      • Also check the Special Notes section to determine if permission is needed to enroll.
    • If you have questions about whether you can enroll in a course or if seats are available, please ask us: online.info@wsu.edu.
  • Select this link to fill out the non-degree application. Applications for undergraduate non-degree seeking students may be accepted through the first day of the semester, but we recommend applying as soon as possible. The application fee is $25. If you plan to earn a certificate, please select that certificate on the application. You can also let us know by email: online@wsu.edu.

What happens next?

  • WSU’s Office of Admissions will review your application materials and notify you of its decision.

  • If you are admitted, the Global Campus will send you an email welcome message with registration information.

  • When your enrollment appointment time begins, if you find that you are not able to enroll in a course, email online@wsu.edu for assistance.
