How long will it take?

Undergraduate Program: For bachelor's degrees, time to completion depends on your schedule, transfer credits and the program you choose.

Graduate Programs: Most Master's degrees at WSU require between 30-36 credit hours. How quickly you finish is up to you.

What will transfer?

Credits from other regionally accredited colleges and universities will transfer to WSU. Credits will also be evaluated by your program of interest to see how many credits will count towards your major and how many will count as elective credits. Please note that if you have attended more than one higher education institution, you will need to submit an official transcript for each one.
