Coronavirus Updates

We understand these are very challenging times, and we are committed to supporting your future at Wilkes. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we have updated our admissions policies to allow students the flexibility needed to continue their admissions process at Wilkes.

Test Flexible for Remaining Fall 2020 Application Period

As a result of COVID-19, our standardized test score requirement for applicants intending to enroll in the fall 2020 semester will be waived. (**Pharmacy and nursing intended majors are still required to submit SAT or ACT scores). If you cannot provide test scores, Wilkes will render an admission decision based on your completed admissions application and official high school transcript.

Submitting Unofficial Documents: First-year and Transfer Applicants

Enrollment at Wilkes is CONTINGENT upon receipt of final official transcript(s). If you are unable to provide an official high school or college transcript with your admissions application, Wilkes will review unofficial documentation and evaluate applications on a case-by-case basis. Where possible, Wilkes will render an admissions decision based on unofficial documentation but will ultimately require a final official transcript before the student can officially enroll and begin classes at Wilkes.

If you dream it, you can do it here.

Wilkes opens doors for those who are driven to go after their dreams. We anticipate how the world is changing and look ahead to the degrees, the experiences, and the opportunities our students need to create the futures they want.
