Visiting students who are attending Wilkes for a given semester, and who will transfer their credits to their home institution, should complete an application and submit it to the Registrar's Office.
Visiting students are not required to submit official college/university transcripts from their home institution, but must submit an unofficial transcript showing proof that they have taken, or are currently taking, any required pre-requisite/co-requisite course(s), if applicable.
Visiting students are encouraged to seek the approval from their current institution's academic advisor to ensure that the Wilkes course will transfer appropriately. Upon completion of a Wilkes course, a student may request official transcripts be sent to their home institution.
Upon completion, the Visiting Registration form is to be submitted to the Registrar's Office by one of the following:
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Fax: (570) 408-4961
- Mail: Wilkes University Registrar's 84 W. South Street; Wilkes-Barre, PA 18766
Current King's College and Misericordia University students:
These institutions offer an opportunity to cross-register at Wilkes for any fall/spring course(s). Students register through the Office of the Registrar of the institution at which they are enrolled as degree candidates and would not complete a visiting registration form. Please contact your institution's academic advisor or registrar office for more information. Please note: cross-registration is not available for summer and winter intersession courses. Students interested in summer and/or winter intersession courses would complete a visiting registration form and are responsible for costs.
