Students show power of perseverance

More colleges are banning laptops from classrooms, The Washington Post reports. They're just too distracting for students. But what if you're an online student who has to work on a computer? How do you handle the constant lure of YouTube and Facebook and Freecell, plus the more concrete demands of work and family?

The answer is simple: Self-discipline. Online students succeed because they are motivated, organized and dedicated.

WSU Online congratulates all of our students on their perseverance. We offer special congratulations to the record number of online students who will see their dedication pay off Saturday at commencement. If you can't make it to Pullman, you can watch the ceremony on videostream.

A must read on financial aid. If you receive federal financial aid, you need to know about some changes due to the passage of the Direct Loan Program. Please read this note from WSU's Financial Aid Office on completing a new master promissory note.
