WSU Tri-Cities Admission
Great students deserve a great education
WSU Tri-Cities offers an affordable quality education in a supportive atmosphere. You'll find personalized instruction and a close-knit campus community where faculty, staff, and students know your name. Partnerships with international corporations and locally owned businesses offer internships and other hands-on learning opportunities, so you can build your knowledge and establish your career. Our professors bring the real world into the classroom, as many also are working professionals in fields such as education, law, and nursing, or work for the Pacific
Northwest National Laboratory or other agencies that specialize in engineering, science, and technology.
The campus is set along the scenic Columbia River in Richland, Washington. The arid desert region is known for its sunny, dry weather with only 7 inches of rain annually. The hot summers and brisk winters allow for outdoor adventures year-round, from water recreation to biking along the 22-mile Sacagawea Heritage Trail that connects to campus.
