Wichita State University

WSU is located in the largest city in Kansas, combining tradition with innovation and taking learning out of the classroom and into the real world - gaining practical experience, building a resume and making connections to get a jump-start on a career.

On and off campus, Shockers have access to arts, entertainment, student groups, athletics, and volunteer opportunities. Shocker Hall and Fairmount Towers provide on-campus living with quick access to all the events and resources the university has to offer. WSU is home to 15 NCAA Division I Teams, plus a wide range of intramural and club sports. WSU's active Greek community is comprised of 11 sororities and 10 fraternities, including Historically Black and Latino Charters.

WSU has 60 undergraduate degree programs in more than 200 areas of study. Through the Cooperative Education and Internships program, students earn college credit, professional connections and experience-based learning.

Campus Location - Wichita State University is located in the Northeast section of Wichita with easy access to shopping, restaurants and entertainment.

Helpful Information - We typically send more students to other campuses on exchange than request to exchange to Wichita State so this gives students wishing to exchange a greater chance of being placed at Wichita State. Housing is available on campus as well as many options within a 3 to 4 miles radius of campus.

Closed Programs
Dental Hygiene, Forensic Science, Medical Technology, Nursing

Students wishing to enroll in upper division business courses numbered 300 and above must be junior standing (60 plus credit hours) and have completed certain prerequisite courses. All 400 level courses in health services management and community development are limited.
