Office hours at WSU

At Wichita State, we don’t like closed doors -- especially when they stand in the way of a working student's ability to get the quality WSU education they deserve.

So we keep the doors to many of our most in-demand student services open until 7 p.m., four days a week.

That means Monday through Thursday you can get the assistance you need to make the transition to college as smooth as possible without ever having to skip your lunch break.

The list below shows the office hours with services offered and contact information. Click the building name to get a locator map and driving directions. You may also view the list sorted alphabetically.

Once you've located the service you need, plan ahead to ensure that your visit goes smoothly:

  • For new students, start with the Office of Admissions to complete an application so you can be admitted. You can do this now by applying online. All degree-bound students and most nondegree-bound students must have official transcripts on file with the Office of Admissions.
  • Advising is required for all new students. You will be advised in the college of your intended major. If you need advising, call ahead to make an appointment. (Undecided, degree-bound exploratory and nondegree-bound students use Liberal Arts and Sciences advising.)
  • If you don’t know where to start, go to the Student Success Center, located in the Rhatigan Student Center (enter from the north during construction) and we will get you pointed in the right direction.
