Prospective Students

Welcome to Washington State University’s Academic Success & Career Center! Choosing the right college/university is a deeply personal and challenging decision. WSU offers many support services to help you plan for your future.

Overview of Our Services

Academic Advising

Our academic advisors’ goal is students’ academic success, and we help them with classes, navigating pass/fail options, changing majors, and looking at other options. Academic Advising is set up through Navigate.

Drop-In Meetings for Academic Advising & Career Coaching

We offer our drop-in hours of 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm; students can still speak with an Academic Advisor or Career Coach. We offer both in-person and virtual meetings. No appointment is necessary.

Career Coaching and Assessments

Students can schedule a career coaching appointment with us for career coaching and assessments via Handshake. At these one-and-one meetings, we can help navigate resources and assessment tools to aid in the ongoing career decision-making process. From resume reviews to finalizing a major and career pathway, we are here to help you discover your best self.


Students can use ASCC tutoring services & our tutoring database to find an available tutor to speak with based on the subject they need help with. Tutoring meetings are offered as in-person and via Zoom.

Academic Success Coaching

Academic coaches work one on one, and students get real-time help and tips on time management, procrastination, learning strategies, and much more!
