Washington State University

Early Outreach & Recruitment

WSU Pullman campus

Welcome!  We are happy you are considering pursuing your education at Washington State University! 

Nestled among the rolling hills of the Palouse, you will find a little town called Pullman, home to a large university, and 20,000 Cougs!  The WSU campus is located about 1.5 hours south of the city of Spokane, and less than an hour from the Nez Perce and Coeur d’Alene Reservations.

Native American Programs facilitates and coordinates Native American early outreach, recruitment, and community relations.  We share responsibility for the recruitment of Native American students by working closely with the WSU Office of Admissions and Student Financial Services.

We welcome the opportunity to answer your questions, host you on campus, and share what we think are the best things about being a Native Coug!


The Native American Outreach Coordinator, Autumn Jones, is here to answer any questions you might have about admissions, financial aid, or student life at WSU.  Give her a call, drop her an email, or find her on facebook.  She is a knowledgeable Cougar alum, and happy to help!  Autumn can also be found traveling throughout Indian Country talking to students and parents at college fairs and other community events.  Watch for her at your school!


One of the best ways to see if WSU is a fit for you, is to visit campus.  You are invited to attend one of our prospective student events on campus.


In addition, you are welcome to schedule a personal visit to campus where you will have the opportunity to take a tour, meet staff, and hear from current Native students.   School groups are welcome!


There are many opportunities available to assist Native students in paying for their WSU education.
