    Applying is Easy

    We are pleased and honored that you’ve chosen to apply to WPU.

    Let’s get started on your application either through WPU or CommonApp (for first-year students only). There is no preference given to either application type. We recommend you choose the most convenient application for you.


    WPU has simplified the college application process to be more holistic and inclusive of student strengths and accomplishments. Students have the choice to submit SAT/ACT scores, or showcase their individual strengths in other ways.

    Key Documents Needed for the Application Process:

    • High School Transcripts
    • Completed Application


    • Official Standardized Test Scores for SAT/ACT
    • Letter/s of Recommendation
    • Additional Essay


    For Readmitted Students

    If you previously attended WPU and are reapplying for traditional undergraduate enrollment, we have simplified the application process. A readmitted student is a student who has not been enrolled for a year or more.
