    The Admissions Process: Who Gets In?

    WPU has a rolling admissions process. We evaluate applications as they are received, rather than waiting until all applications have been submitted after a hard deadline. We also continue to evaluate applications until we’ve filled our incoming class.

    That means: 

    • Less stressing about deadlines
    • You receive notification of your acceptance much sooner
    • Less competition if you apply early — plus opportunities for extra scholarships! 

    That’s why we look at every application and consider you as a person taking that next step. Because of this holistic approach, we prefer to provide you with middle 50% ranges. This means that 25% of students that enrolled were below this middle 50% and 25% were above.

    • SAT middle 50 percent: 1095-1205
    • ACT middle 50 percent: 21-26
    • Average GPA: 3.67
