Information for Transfer Students


Transfer Campus Housing - Welcome Discover the Many Advantages to becoming Shocker! Wichita State has developed programs and services to make your transition to our campus as smooth as possible. Our transfer guides have a variety of resources available to assist you in getting your transferrelated questions answered. Our transfer equivalency website will help you see how your credits will transfer to WSU. We have scholarship opportunities just for students transferring here and three admissions representatives dedicated to helping you along the way. WSU offers quality academic programs, a vibrant student life, opportunities to make an impact on the community and that special Shocker Spirit. Join the “Thinkers, Doers, Movers and SHOCKERS� at Wichita State. Wherever you are transferring from, fantastic opportunities await you at Wichita State University. One of those opportunities is specialized housing tailored to the incoming transfer student experience. The residence halls have two different transfer communities, Wheatshocker Apartments and Brennan Hall. Both communities focus on easing your transition to WSU with activities to connect you with other students and the campus. Since each community is in a different hall, you can mix and match building styles and amenities to find the place that is right for you.

Wheatshocker Apartments

Wheatshocker Apartments

In the fall of 1994, WSU President Eugene Hughes proposed buying the apartments to “make a new building out of an old building.� With an investment of about $11.6 million in revenue bonds, the university gutted the six-story, U-shaped building and replaced virtually everything. The first phase of renovation was completed by the fall 1996 semester. It is now a prime housing option for sophomores, married students and single-parent students with no more than two children.
