About our online application

WSU is utilizing Smartsheet, a FERPA and HIPAA compliant platform, to securely process your residency application and attached documents. Emails from us may come via Smartsheet; please look in your WSU email spam folder if you have not heard from us. We will email your WSU Email address only.

It is highly recommended that you take the Residency Quiz and read about the different types of residency applications prior to selecting an application. The traditional application is the longest and most difficult application; if you are eligible using the Residency Affidavit, the process is easier.
