Welcome to Western from New Student Services/Family Outreach!
We strive to support the transition process of new students and their family members to the WWU community.
For students, we offer academic advising and orientation programs and resources based on your student type (First-Year, Transfer, Post-bacc) and which quarter you are entering Western. For parents and family members, the NSSFO office also supports year-round communications such as monthly e-newsletters and calendars, family orientation programs, and an annual family weekend event in the fall for students and families.
