About WSU Online

Wichita State University has many flexible online degree options and a dedicated online student support team to help students achieve their educational goals.

Students work directly with their Online Academic Advisor to create a plan of study and declare a major, without having to leave their job or community to come on campus.

The OneStop Student Services helps students manage all aspects of their student experience (admissions, financial aid, student accounts, registration, help desk, and more) fully online, via telephone, email, or live chat, 24/7/365.

The Online Learning Advisory Committee provides input into decisions regarding policies and procedures for the Office of Online Learning.

The Online Faculty Fellows provide quality assurance support for online course design and serve as ambassadors for online education at Wichita State.
