Follow These Steps to Apply Online
NOTE: Transfer students may apply at any time with a paper application. If applying online, transfers must wait for the entry term to be available.
We suggest disabling pop-up blockers before beginning the online application.
Step 1 Apply by selecting Winona State University. Students who have had previous experiences with WSU or the Minnesota State College and University (MNSCU) system should select the login option and use their existing ID number and password. If you’re a 2012-2013 high school senior, use 06/2013 for graduation year on the form. After you complete and submit your application, you will receive an email with your WSU Warrior Tech ID number and password. You should receive this message within 2 business days.
WSU requires a $20 application fee that may be paid online with a debit or credit card. If you have waited the appropriate time after submitting an application and do not have an email from us, call 507.457.5100, or 800.342.5978, ext. 5100 for assistance.
You will receive an admissions decision letter in the mail 2-3 weeks after WSU receives your application, fee, transcript and official test score. If you would like to track your steps toward enrollment at WSU, please make or visit your myWSU account and return to it often. We will communicate with you throughout the process via email, so check your messages often!
Email us to change information such as mailing address, phone numbers, or the major of interest you selected when you applied. Please do not submit a new application for these changes.
Under the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act (MGDP), WSU Admissions may not share private information with anyone other than the student, regardless of the student’s age, after an admissions application has been submitted. Admissions staff members will ask applicants to identify themselves during telephone conversations. Email addresses must match those previously provided by the student.
The Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) authorization form is provided to new students at first enrollment, typically during their registration program day.
