How will I know when I’ve been admitted?
You can check your application status by logging in to the application portal (you’ll create the log in when you begin the application), and you will also be notified by mail when you have been accepted.


What do I do after I’ve been admitted?
Once you’ve been admitted to WSU, go to portalapps.weber.edu/getwcid/ to create your eWeber account.

eWeber is WSU’s online student portal. Your eWeber account allows you to register for classes, check your transcript, get your Wildcat e-mail account, check your financial aid status, pay tuition, review your grades, and perform many other tasks vital to your education at WSU—anytime, anywhere.

It is important that you have a Wildcat e-mail account and check it often. Scholarship selection committees may request, or convey additional information through your Wildcat mail. WSU will communicate with you through the portal and your Wildcat e-mail while you are a student here.

You will get the “What’s Next?” brochure with your acceptance letter. It will give you more information about registration, placement testing, student services, financial planning and other frequently asked questions. Go to weber.edu/registrar for help.


When do I have to pay tuition?
Tuition is due the Friday before classes start each semester.
