WSU Vancouver offers a small-school feel with big-school resources, a reverse commute and now, reduced tuition equal to in-state rates for residents of Oregon's Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties.
COVID-19 and Oregon’s historic wildfires caused many students to rethink their plans to leave the area to attend college. As a land-grant university with access as part of its mission, WSU Vancouver is committed to making more options available to more students.
