Embrace challenge

Experience the academic rigor only a university can offer while feeling supported by faculty who want you to succeed. WSU Vancouver has more than 200 Ph.D. faculty, many of whom are nationally recognized experts.

Study hard

WSU Vancouver is the only four-year research university in Southwest Washington. Here you will get personalized education that brings out the best in you and inspires you to achieve your highest goals.


Stay close and save

If you can continue living at home while you attend WSU Vancouver, you can save about $10,000 a year you would otherwise spend on housing and dining at a distant university. Out-of-state students can save on tuition with the PDX Tuition Advantage, the Border Bill or the Western Undergraduate Exchange.
