Graduate Passport

Keeping your passport current is mandatory regardless of what classes you are taking.  Prior to the beginning of each semester, log on to the E*Value database, go to “Other Tasks”, then to “Personal Records Requirements” and update any expired requirement. Please do not delete the expired documentation, just add your new documentation. Also, check your expiration date column and update requirements that are about to expire or schedule the update and add to your calendar with other program obligations.

It is your responsibility to keep your graduate passport current throughout enrollment, without prompts from faculty or staff.

IMPORTANT: Allowing a passport item to expire could result in a registration hold, a delay or cessation of your rotation until the item is updated and documented, not being able to count clinical hours accrued during the time when a passport item is expired, and/or Notice of Unsatisfactory Performance (NUP).

Please be aware that some clinical sites may have additional requirements above and beyond the clinical passport. Students will need to complete these additional requirements in order to do a rotation at these sites.

WSU Graduate Passport forms, links and instructions are found on the WSU website: https://nursing.wsu.edu/current/admitted-students/.
