2020 Admission Application is Now Live

For a student’s application to be considered for admission, they will need to 1) submit an online application, 2) submit a copy of their high school transcript and 3) submit official ACT or SAT scores. After our office receives all required portions of their application, we will review the student’s file. WSU does not require an admission essay, but may request information from students on an as-needed basis. The application fee remains $50 and as always, students with financial need may request a fee waiver. The fee waiver request is located at the end of our online admission application form on the payment page.
