Portal Information


The Global Cougar Success Program is your gateway to getting the most out of your online educational experience. Students choosing to earn their degrees online don't have as many opportunities as on-campus students to get involved with the school, or to feel like a bona fide member of the Washington State University community. The goal of this program is to create a well-rounded student, and to encourage involvement in WSU beyond a solely academic focus.
