Welcome to the WSU International Student Tutorial.
We are eager to meet you!

International Student Tutorial

The tutorial will help you get ready for your journey at WSU the best way possible. It has 2 required parts.

  1. The virtual Canvas course
    • You will be enrolled in and take a self-paced WSU Canvas course before the start of the term. You will need to watch several short, required videos and complete quizzes as you prepare to join WSU. This information will help you prepare for the face-to-face tutorial and New Coug Orientation when you get here. Log in to WSU Canvas here to get started: canvas.wsu.edu.
  2. The face-to-face tutorial when you arrive at WSU that is designed just for you 
    • The schedule that will be posted on this page a few weeks before semester start will indicate the date of your tutorial, which depends on the type of student you are. Plan your arrival time to attend the required tutorial. The tutorial will provide you with important information about meeting your basic needs such as housing, help you make connections and build friends, and teach you more about academic preparedness, social identity, campus engagement, how WSU can support you, and more!

All students at WSU Everett, Spokane, Tri-Cities, Vancouver, or research and extension will be enrolled in and required to complete the international student tutorial Canvas course prior to the start of the semester.
