INFO FOR FUTURE STUDENTS
Although the Carson Center for Student Success is not currently open for face-to-face operations until further notice, we are still offering most services via telephone, email or through Zoom (a web conferencing platform).
If you have already scheduled an appointment with your academic advisor, please keep the appointment. Carson Center advisors plan to initiate contact with you via Zoom. If you are unable to meet with your advisor through Zoom, please make sure your telephone number in myWSU has been updated so that they may reach out you by phone during the appointment.
To schedule, change, or cancel an advising appointment, please do so via Navigate (https://navigate.wsu.edu). If you are having difficulty scheduling an appointment, please contact your academic advisor via email and they will assist you.
For general questions regarding academic advising, please email the Carson Center advising team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

All in-person career events have been cancelled for the Spring and Summer 2020 term. Instead we will be offering virtual career events and virtual career consulting appointments via zoom. Please find all virtual events or make a career appointment using Handshake.
If you have already scheduled an appointment, please keep the appointment. The career consultant with which you scheduled will initiate contact with you to share their Zoom meeting space.

Traditional May commencement ceremonies will be postponed until at least August at all WSU campuses, President Kirk Schulz announced in an email sent to students. The decision was made after consulting students and campus leadership system-wide. New graduates now will have two opportunities to participate in commencement exercises.
Pass/Fail Grading Option
For the Spring 2020 term only, Washington State University has enhanced the Pass/Fail grading option so that students enrolled in undergraduate courses may choose to earn a Pass/Fail grade instead of a letter grade for some or all courses.
If you have already scheduled to attend a Registration Café for the Spring 2020, you will receive an email 48 hours prior to your scheduled meeting that includes a unique Zoom meeting link so that you may still attend virtually.
For questions regarding the Registration Cafes, please email Stacey Smith-Colon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scholarship applications are currently under review. Any notifications of awards will be sent to students via email.

Spring 2020 Programs
Due to the increasing threat levels, WSU strongly recommends that you return to the US as soon as reasonable.
- The Department of State has declared a Global Level 3 Warning for all travel and created a specific page for COVID-19 travel information.
- President Trump’s Proclamation regarding travel to the US from Europe (3/11/2020): https://www.dhs.gov/news-releases/press-releases.
Keep in mind that this proclamation only impacts non-US nationals.
- The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has issued a Level 3 Warning for all of Europe as of 7:30pm (Coug time) this evening.
- WSU COVID-19 Information Website
Upon return, consider the following in terms of your interactions:
- Review the CDC recommendations to prevent the spread of the virus:
- When you come back to the US, please return to your permanent address and self-quarantine for 14 days.
Questions about spring programs should be directed to Dr. Kelly A. Newlon, the Director of Global Learning (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Summer 2020 Programs
After careful consideration by International Programs and the WSU Executive Policy Group, as well as with the guidance of the Unites States State Department, Centers for Disease Control, WSU Public Health Emergency Preparedness Task Force, and Whitman County Health Department, the difficult decision to cancel all study abroad programs has been made. This includes both faculty-led and program provider programs.
At this time make sure that you communicate directly with your academic advisor regarding coursework to ensure that this does not disrupt your academic progress. Appointments with your advisor will still be made via SSC Navigate.
Additional items to consider:
- An IP generated FAQ page: https://ip.wsu.edu/on-campus/covid-19-faqs/. There is some information that is potentially helpful for GL students related to working with airlines included.
- If you have already purchased your plane ticket, we suggest calling your airline in order to request a refund or voucher to be used on a future flight. Keep communicating with them as the policies may adjust as the COVID-19 impact continues to impact the world.
- Follow the CDC recommendations for preventing and treating COVID-19.
- It is not recommended that you travel outside the US for the foreseeable future.
- Learn about the Coronavirus. I recommend this WHO video.
Questions should be directed to the Global Learning Office: email@example.com
At this time we hope that study abroad will resume by fall semester. Interested students should take the following steps:
- Talk to your Global Learning Advisor (virtual appointments made at https://ip.wsu.edu/study-abroad/)
- Make an appointment with the Carson College of Business’s Study Abroad Coordinator, Courtney Anne Jackson (virtual appointments made via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Speak with your Academic Advisor to plan out your classes abroad
At this time Global Cougs 101 Sessions are on hold. Topics normally covered in these sessions can be covered in your appointment with your Global Learning Advisor.
If you have any questions regarding study abroad feel free to reach out to the Carson College of Business’s Study Abroad Coordinator, Courtney Anne Jackson (Zoom appointments can be set up with Courtney via e-mail: email@example.com) or the Global Learning Office: firstname.lastname@example.org

Attending online classes are important. We have heard from a few students that they are dealing with weak internet capabilities and are having difficulty attending classes and Zoom meetings. If you are in this situation, there are several companies that are offering discounts or free service to students affected by COVID-19. This previously linked article may be helpful.
We suggest checking with your local internet service providers to see what offers they are offering to students. Here are some that we found:
- Spectrum – Offering Free internet for 60 days to college students
- Centurylink – Suspending data usage limits for current customers
- Sparklight – Offering unlimited data on all internet services
- Verizon – Automatically appyling 15GB of high speed data for wireless customers from Mar 25 – Apr 30
The University has also set up an arrangement for students in need of improved hardware to access online course material. For further information visit this WSU Information page.
