Congratulations on your admission to CWU!

We are excited that you have decided to become a part of Central Washington University's Wildcat family. A basic assumption we make as we design orientation is that this transition will be unique to each of you. Your unique needs will be determined by your past experiences. Our goal is to support each of you while providing pathways of support to ensure your future success and growth.
