To do so, you must complete a set of admission requirements and submit an application. Most students complete their admission requirements in their second or third semester.

Although admission into the Carson College is competitive (approx. 85% of applicants are admitted), all students who meet the minimum requirements are encouraged to apply

  • Work with your academic advisor to develop a course plan for the coming semester.
  • Did you take courses at other institutions? If these courses fulfill any of the admission requirements, make sure all transfer work is recorded in my.WSU by the last day of finals (Send transcripts to the WSU Admissions Office). Late transcripts will delay the review of your application and could result in your application being denied.
  • Currently enrolled at another institution? Send an unofficial copy of your course enrollment to for preliminary review. However, your final transcripts must be received by the WSU Admissions Office by the last day of WSU’s finals week.
  • Still have questions about applying to certify? Contact your advisor today!
