How to Apply for Undergraduate Admission

Apply for international undergraduate admission if you are a citizen of a country other than the United States of America and not a permanent resident of the United States.


WSU accepts international undergraduate applications at any time of year and operates on a rolling admission basis. However, our priority deadlines are April 15 for fall admission, Nov. 1 for spring admission, and Feb. 1 for summer admission.

Follow these steps to apply

1. Gather your documents

Check the admission requirements for information about academic standards and required documents.

Your application for admission must include:

  • Official transcripts
  • Proof of English language proficiency
  • Copy of your passport identification page or national identity card

2. Prepare your information

You will want to prepare some information before beginning your online application.

  • Be ready to answer questions about your anticipated visa status.
  • Be ready to tell us how you meet the language proficiency requirement (through an English proficiency exam score or an exam waiver).

You may upload electronic copies of your documents when you submit your application online. If you upload transcripts they will be considered unofficial. It is best to send transcripts separately after you submit your application.

3. Complete the application and submit documents

To complete the application and submit it for our review you will need to pay the $70 application fee by credit card or wire transfer. If you have questions about paying this fee please contact us.

If you do not wish to upload documents into the application, or do not have them ready to upload and submit, you may mail or email them to the International Undergraduate Admissions Office when you submit your application.

For applications received from agents or educational representatives, Washington State University requires payment of a non-refundable $2000 tuition deposit be paid when the student is granted a visa. These funds will be applied towards tuition costs once the student is enrolled. This payment is due immediately upon notification that the student’s visa has been approved. If the non-refundable $2000 deposit is not paid, the I-20 letter will be withdrawn and the application canceled.


High-achieving international students who enroll at WSU will automatically receive our international academic award. You are welcome to apply for additional awards.
