A Pathway to Affordable Education

Kelly Ngigi moved from Birmingham, Alabama, to Seattle just a few weeks after graduating from high school but she wasn’t committed to going to college just yet. So she took classes at Highline College before transferring to WSU.

Please contact Student Financial Services for guidance on financial aid and scholarships.

I had every intention to transfer to a university out of state, but what drew me to stay in the state was the financial aspect. I visited WSU for the transfer orientation session and it really changed my perspective. I loved the support they were offering to students.
