Note for International Students:

International students who are already studying abroad at WSU or who have transferred to WSU from another country may be deemed to have met the international experience requirement. International students who choose their home region need to work with an advisor to plan their courses to fulfill the language and cultural/area studies requirements. It is recommended that non-English speakers choose English language courses and courses on U.S. culture, history and/or political systems to fulfill these requirements. International students who choose a regional emphasis outside their home region are required to fulfill the same language and cultural/area studies requirements as domestic students.
