Welcome to Wilkes.

You have recently completed the first, and most important, step in the college enrollment process by gaining admission to Make a depositWilkes University. We are proud to be among your top college choices.

Your next step is to submit a $300 non-refundable tuition deposit by the May 1 deadline. This reserves a place for you among our fall freshman class. This deposit makes you eligible to attend summer orientation, where you will register for your fall courses and become acquainted with the college environment. Reserving your seat with a deposit allows us to plan classroom space, faculty needs and facility usage for your first year.

We will keep you informed about future steps. A financial aid award will be sent to you as soon as we receive the results of your FAFSA submission.
