We are so excited for you to join our team! This is an exciting journey that you are getting ready to begin and we would like to help you remain successful throughout your studies.
We created this guide to help you transition to graduate studies at WOU. On these pages you’ll find information about general graduate studies, academic requirements, and how to register for classes. Your academic program will also provide you with information specific to your field of study.
If you are conditionally admitted pending submission of official transcripts, you may find details regarding transcript submission on our website.
The Graduate Channel was created for all graduate students to have access to all links that are required for them to be successful. It will appear in a dark gray box at the top of your portal during your first term of enrollment at Western Oregon University. If you have started classes and still do not have the channel, please contact Amber Deets right away.
The Graduate Channel includes links to the following (also found under Student Resources on the website):
The Office of Disability Services (ODS) provides reasonable accommodations to ensure that students with documented disabilities have access to Western Oregon University (WOU) classes, programs and events.
If you would like to request disability related accommodation(s), apply with our office as soon as you have decided to attend WOU and receive your WOU student ID number and email address

In addition, WOU may change tuition and fees between today and when you finish your program, changing the overall cost estimate. The total cost of attendance will depend on the number of credits taken, books and supplies needed for different courses, and personal spending habits.
Business Office Communication:
The Business office sends emails monthly when a statement is available. These will be titled “Student Billing Statement.” Statements are also available to you in WolfWeb under the Student Menu. The link is labeled View Student Bill. The preferred method to access your statement is via WolfWeb.
Can I carry a balance and still register?
Students can carry a balance from the current term but any balance from a prior term needs to be paid to prevent registration holds.
For all questions you may have related to your bill, please review this presentation.
Need more assistance? Connect with a member of the Accounting and Business Services (ABS) office regarding your bill, options for paying, and strategies for managing your finances.
Need more assistance? Make an appointment with a financial aid counselor or check out the Financial Aid website to discuss any financial aid questions or opportunities.

If you previously attended WOU as an undergraduate, you can use the same card.
You have a couple of options to get your student ID card without physically being on campus! You can choose to have your ID card mailed to you or saved for you to pick up once you are on campus.
Please choose from one of the following options:
1. Email a headshot (choose a solid color background, from about chest level, up) to email@example.com. Please include the following information in your email: Picture, full name, V number, and mailing address (unless you want the ID card held for you).
2. Use this link to schedule a 15-minute Calendly appointment (google hangouts virtual meeting) with the information desk. During that meeting, they will take a picture of you, create your ID card, and mail or save it for you. Please have a solid color background near you to stand in front of your picture. You will need your V number to create the appointment, so please have that ready.
3. As always, you are welcome to visit campus and receive your ID card at the Werner University Center information desk.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have.
Please note that your first ID card is free. If that card is lost/stolen, you will need to pay $15 to receive a replacement card.
