Applying to Waynesburg University is a simple process.

Admissions Process

Waynesburg University evaluates applications holistically. Our holistic review not only includes the strength of an applicant's high school curriculum and SAT or ACT score, but it also includes their participation in extracurricular activities, participation in community service and ability to enhance the overall campus community.

  • College preparatory curriculum throughout high school (Honors, AP and Dual Enrollment classes are helpful)
  • High school transcript with senior schedule or a copy of GED
  • SAT OR ACT score
  • Submit official high school transcript(s) with senior class schedule (or copy of GED) and any SAT/ACT scores to:

Waynesburg University
Office of Admissions
51 W College St
Waynesburg, PA 15370

*The Admissions Committee reserves the right to request additional information, including but not limited to: high school transcript(s) for GED candidates, revised SAT or ACT scores, additional test scores, letters of recommendation, senior year grades, and/or a personal interview. The Admissions Committee also reserves the right to recalculate GPA based on core curriculum.

For 2017 applicants, Waynesburg University will accept both the new SAT and the old SAT. For admission and scholarship purposes, we will consider the single highest score from your test dates. Per College Board recommendations, Waynesburg University will not combine one individual section score from the new SAT with one individual section score from the old SAT. If you took both assessments, we will use concordance tables provided by College Board to compare scores.
