Online excellence

Distance delivery is in our DNA. WSU Vancouver was a pioneer in distance learning and among the first to use video conferencing to deliver courses. We are well prepared to provide you with a high-quality education experience that maintains personal contact between you and your instructors.

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 healthy & save

By learning from home, you decrease your exposure to COVID-19 and save about $10,000 a year by not paying for a dorm room and dining at a distant university. Out-of-state students can also save thanks to the Western Undergraduate Exchange.
