Western Connecticut State University provides their students with a first-rate, career-focused education — without weighing them down with debt.

WCSU’s high-tech facilities, top researchers and inspiring professors help their students develop top-level professional and leadership skills. For over 100 years, they’ve provided academic excellence, a fantastic collegiate experience and affordable tuition.

Their proximity to business and cultural centers in Connecticut and New York lets their students score resumé-boosting internships — and explore world-class theater, music and art.

Teaching top-rated programs ranging from nursing to musical theatre, their professors are often working professionals in their fields, teaching small, personalized classes in fully equipped, modern labs and studios. There are no impersonal stadium classes here!

A Great Start for Everyone

WCSU leaders pride themselves on their widely diverse community that welcomes first-generation students, nontraditional students, veterans, students in the International Student Exchange Program, and working professionals who only attend at night or online — all people who want to improve their lives through education.

One of the reasons so many can upgrade their lives with WCSU is because they don’t burden their students with debt. Students from New York and New Jersey pay only WCSU’s in-state tuition. Students from Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont get big discounts on WCSU’s in-state tuition because of WCSU’s participation in the New England Regional Student Program.

They offer over 100 scholarships in all fields, and many opportunities for work/study, paid internships, co-ops and more.

Practical, Experiential Learning — and a Rewarding Campus Culture

WCSU has more than 50 majors to explore. Whether your passion steers you toward science, health, art, humanities or business, you’ll get expert teaching in small classroom settings, labs and field work. You’ll also be able to take advantage of relevant excursions, internships, faculty-led undergraduate research projects and study-abroad opportunities.

It’s not all academic grind, though — you can play for one of their many club sport and intramural teams, or join other fans as their NCAA Division III athletes take the field (or court, or pool). You can make friends and stay fit with more than 75 student clubs and organizations to choose from as well as Greek life, student government, varsity sports and a dynamic intramural and recreation program.

You’ll get lots of opportunities to learn and practice the “soft skills” employers look for (such as leadership, teamwork and time management) while having fun. Create lasting memories with lifelong friends — from on-campus jazz concerts and open mic nights to Homecoming Week and WCSU’s Annual WestFest.
