Wilkes University

Acceptance for Admission and Advanced Deposit

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);

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. 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.

Wilkes University also offers Early Decision Admission.

Committing early to Wilkes University comes with several advantages:

  • priority housing, based on preference and availability
  • advanced registration for courses within your intended field of study
  • access to an early advising session
  • scholarship priority with early FAFSA submission

The same application requirements listed above are applicable for Early Decision. The deadline to apply for Early Decision is November 15th.
