WPU receives applications on a rolling basis so that you can apply anytime. However, we recommend you apply by March 1 for the Fall Term and November 1 for the Spring Term.
We review applications holistically. That means that while GPA and test scores (optional) are important, we want to know all about you as a person and a community member to get the complete picture of who you are — in and out of the classroom. While optional, submitting 1-2 letters of recommendation, a personal essay, and a co-curricular resume is a good idea. Those items help the Admission Committee when making admissions determinations.
To give you a sense of the strength of our enrolling students, last year's class had a mid-50 % SAT range of 1095-1205, ACT of 21-26, and an average GPA of 3.67. Remember that those are averages and ranges but should provide a good perspective.

Sometimes, you know a university is right for you because of how it feels. We hear that a lot at WPU.
You can only learn so much from brochures or the website. That's why we recommend you visit several college campuses, maybe more than once. You need to understand what life is like at your potential future home.
At WPU, we offer many visit options:
-Virtual Applications Sessions
During your on-campus visit, you'll meet a student ambassador who can answer any of your questions about life on campus. You'll also see faculty and staff. While visiting, we hope you'll dig in and ask questions: Ask why they chose WPU and about their experience.
You can make an appointment to talk to an admission counselor during your tour. That counselor will be an advocate for you with the Admission Committee should you choose to apply.

Being a first-generation college student from a single-parent household, the fear of not being able to go to college because of finances was always scary to me. The financial aid team gave me and my mother a chance to ask questions and understand the routes we could take to pay for college. This helped both of us feel less worried about the financial aspect of coming to WPU.
