UI-WSU Coop Registration

Cooperative Agreement

For over 50 years the University of Idaho and Washington State University have cooperated on sharing academic resources which has enriched educational opportunities for students and has fostered the sharing of faculty, facilities, and ideas between our universities. The close proximity of two major land grant institutions provides a unique opportunity for cooperation between two institutions with similar programs and a similar mission.

At the end of each semester, UI and WSU will automatically exchange transcripts for cooperative students to allow the home institution to record credit.  WSU cooperative courses taken by UI students will be posted as transfer credit, but count as resident credit toward degree requirements.

  2. Review the WSU Cooperative Class Schedule for offerings (use link on left menu).

Complete a WSU Cooperative Course Application; undergraduate students should complete the Undergraduate Application* and graduate students should complete the Graduate Application.   *Additionally, UI undergraduate students will need to apply online (see instructions on application).  You will not be charged an application fee.
  4. WSU will admit UI students as cooperative non-degree status and notify students of their admission and login credentials.
  5. Register for WSU cooperative class(es) on zzusis.
Note: UI cooperative students may only register for approved cooperative courses.  Class prerequisites will be systematically enforced; students should contact the offering department for assistance if they encounter registration errors (make sure to identify yourself as a cooperative student).

What About Fees and Financial Aid?


UI students will continue to pay all registration fees and tuition to UI, however, they will be responsible for paying any special course fees (e.g. lab fees, technology fees, etc) directly to WSU for cooperative courses they are enrolled in.  WSU will share enrollment information of the UI cooperative students in order for their registered credits to count toward full-time enrollment status at UI.  UI students will continue to receive their financial aid through UI.
