This 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. 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 
    • Check the chart above for the type of student you are, and plan to arrive in 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 friendships, and teach you more about academic preparedness, social identity, campus engagement, how WSU can support you, and more!

For WSU Students NOT Attending Pullman Campus

As a student at WSU Everett, Spokane, Tri-Cities, or Vancouver, you will be enrolled in and required to complete the international student tutorial Canvas course prior to the start of the semester. You will also receive an email with information about a required immigration presentation over Zoom. Additionally, you should email your campus contact for more information about where and when to complete your physical check-in and new student orientation at your campus.
