All applicants for admission to the University must submit the following:
1) a completed and signed application for admission to the University;
2) an official copy of the most recent high school or college transcript or both (a official final high school transcript is required after the applicant graduates high school);
3) SAT or ACT scores (either official copies or scores recorded on the official high school transcript); and
4) the application fee (see Student Expenses, "Undergraduate Application and Admission Fees" in this bulletin).
After the application file is complete, the Office of Admissions will review the file, render a decision, and notify the applicant of that decision. Admissions decisions are made on a "rolling" basis, and notification is generally made within two to four weeks from the date the file is complete. An applicant may be required to complete an evaluative interview prior to the rendering of a final decision.
All students guarantee their place in the entering class by forwarding a $300 tuition deposit to the Office of Admissions. May 1 is the priority deadline for receipt of deposits.
Wilkes University also accepts applications for the spring semester and summer session. Procedures are similar to those for students entering in the fall semester.
While Wilkes practices "rolling" admissions, the University reserves the right to close admission with a two-week notification.
