The University College is a non-degree-granting college that supports all undergraduates at WSU. There are no admission requirements; any student can access the various programs and courses (described below) offered by the college.
One- and two-credit courses are designed to fit student schedules and can be paired with other University College courses or courses in the major for high-impact learning. The curriculum assists students in gaining the skills for effective decision-making to manage key transitions of the college years: from high school or a community college to a research university, transition into a major, and transition from college into a career and a life of personal fulfillment.
