Step 1: Determine your math course
If you did NOT complete Math 141, Math 107 or Math 146 while at community college you will need to take a Math class prior to enrolling in Psych 311.
Step 2: Determine your Biology course
If you did not take a general biology with lab course prior to enrolling at WSU you will need to take Biol 102, Biol 106 or Biol 107 at WSU. Please consult with your advisor regarding which of these classes would best suit you.
Step 3: Transfer your courses INCLUDING your AA where applicable
It is imperative that you transfer all your classes into WSU as soon as you possibly can to avoid taking redundant coursework. You can use the Transfer Course Equivalency site:transfer course to determine how your coursework will transfer in. Visit the Transfer Student Guide in order to get your credits transferred in. Also, you need to transfer your actual AA to WSU in order to complete your UCORE classes. Once your transcript posts, you will be able to tell when you run a “what-if” report. Your UCORE classes will show as being “satisfied by DTA.”
Step 4. Create a two-year plan

Step 5: Read the advising syllabus REQUIRED
You will NOT be seen for an advising appointment until you have read the advising syllabus and agreed to the conditions.
Step 6: Run run a “what-if” or “degree audit” report
Before your appointment, please check your my.WSU for any holds you may have that are NOT academic in nature. Please try to take care of those holds BEFORE you meet with us. We also ask that you run a “What if” or “Degree Audit” report so that you have a better idea of the classes YOU still need to take before you meet with us.
Step 7: Create a proposed schedule of classes
Step 8: Update your student information if needed
We need to be able to reach you so you can take advantage of some of our experiential learning opportunities AND so you know about restricted classes! If your email or phone numbers change, PLEASE use your my.WSU BEFORE your appointment and update your info. To do this: my.WSU sign-in > Main Menu > My Profile > Update Personal Information
