Apply as a transfer student

You’re considered a transfer student for admission purposes if you have attended college after the summer following high school graduation. If you earned your college credit while you were still in high school (e.g., through Running Start), follow the steps for freshman admission. If you are an international student, visit the international admission page.

Before you apply

WSU North Puget Sound at Everett offers degree completion programs for transfer students who want to enter at a junior level standing with WSU. This means that prospective students should complete or be near completion of a transferable Associate degree prior to enrolling at WSU in Everett or they will have completed as many of the university’s general education (UCORE) requirements as possible. For further information, view our requirements.

How to apply as a transfer

  1. Fill out the transfer application.

Admission to WSU Everett is offered to qualified students on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications completed by the priority application date of January 31 will receive first consideration.


Applying online is preferred, but if that is not possible you can also print and mail in the 2017 transfer admission application PDF.

If you choose to attend a different semester than the one indicated on your application, you’ll need to re-apply.

To make sure you receive the highest possible amount of financial help, file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) or WASFA (Washington Application for State Financial Aid for HB 1079 students only) by January 31.

  1. Request transcripts from all colleges you have attended.

Admitted WSU Everett students will enter at junior standing. Successful candidates will generally have near 60 semester credit hours (90 quarter credit hours) at the point of entry. Many candidates will have completed a transferable associates degree though it is not always required for entry.

Transcripts and test scores must be sent directly from the school or testing agency to WSU via secure electronic document transfer, fax, or mail. Email is not accepted. Please mail official transcripts to:

WSU North Puget Sound at Everett
Office of Admissions 
Gray Wolf Hall 101
2000 Tower Street, MS – 45 
Everett, WA 98201 
Fax: 425-405-1601

After you apply

When we receive your application, the application fee or waiver request, and official transcripts from the colleges you’ve attended, the Office of Admissions will review your application and all supporting materials. During our review we’ll determine your total number of transferable college credits, cumulative GPA in the transferable work, and which University common requirements (UCORE) you’ve completed. Courses that are applicable to your major will be evaluated by the department you’re planning to major in.

Once we have completed our review, we will notify you of the admission decision by letter.
