Admission Procedures

Applicants seeking admission should write to the Office of Admissions requesting the necessary application forms. The responsibility for the completion of these forms rests with the applicant. The following credentials are required:

  1. Formal Application. The standard application form may be obtained by writing to the Office of Admissions or by applying online through the University website, A twenty-dollar, non-refundable application fee should accompany the application. Checks or money orders should be made payable to Waynesburg University and sent to the Office of Admissions. The University reserves the right to waive the application fee.
  2. Transcript of Credits. High school transcript must include all work pursued through the senior year of secondary school. Prior to matriculation, all new students are to submit a final official high school transcript with the date of graduation. Students who have graduated prior to submitting their applications are required to present a complete academic record. Transcripts of transfer students must include all college work completed to date.
  3. Testing Programs. All entering freshmen must submit scores from the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the American College Test (ACT). The scores may be submitted as part of the high school transcript if the student has not furnished the University with an official score report from the testing agency. Information concerning these examinations may be obtained from high school counselors or by writing to the Office of Admissions. Transfer applicants are exempt from this requirement. Please refer to the Transfer Students section that follows for additional details about the transfer application process. *
  4. Additional Testing. Waynesburg University reserves the right to test further any applicant. Students may be invited to demonstrate their ability in tests administered by the staff of the Admissions Office and recommended by the Admissions Committee, or they may be required to take additional tests not administered by Waynesburg University personnel.
  5. Personal Interview. Upon request, the Admissions Committee may require an interview of an applicant.
  6. Advanced Deposits. Resident students accepted for the 2022-2023 academic year are charged a $250 deposit. Nonresident students are to submit a deposit of $150. This deposit is credited to the student’s account and must be paid according to the date established in the deposit letter. The deposit is refundable for full-time students only if the Admissions Office is notified in writing of the student’s intention to withdraw his or her application by May 1 (second semester, second Friday in December). After these dates there will be no refund.

If a prospective student decides to withdraw his or her application, the application, including any documents submitted with it, will be kept on file for two years should the student reconsider Waynesburg University. While these documents will be kept on file, prospective students who choose to pursue Waynesburg University for a future term must reapply and submit any additional or updated final transcripts or other documents requested at the time of the new application. Also, at that time, the Admissions Committee would need to reevaluate the application for admission and scholarship opportunities based on the admission standards and scholarship requirements of the new application entry term.

* Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many applicants were unable to access the SAT/ACT. Those applicants were reviewed for admission for the 2022-2023 academic year without SAT/ACT scores.
