For Applicants

Whether you are considering making application or have already done so, you have come to the right place—a place to help you navigate the application process.

The admission process is competitive so the more timely and comprehensive the submission of an application and supporting documentation, the greater chance of a favorable admission decision. When a prospective transfer student applies, he or she promptly will receive an acknowledgement letter (be sure to keep the letter as reference) that provides access information to Your Gateway, the applicant’s best way to track his or her progress and status through the admission process.

Do you have to submit a high school transcript? Do you have to send all college records or just the one from the last college attended? Check out Your Records to be sure that you submit all required records as well as supplemental information that best supports your application for admission.

What is required for admission consideration? Your Requirements sheds light on factors that affect admission decisions and details Minimum Course Requirements (MCR) and other requirements that have been established by the UNC Board of Governors or WCU.

Transfer students vary greatly, especially in terms of the amount and type of credit attempted. WCU has established more than one path to admission. Learn about four different admission paths for transfer students through Your Options.

We hope you will visit. We hope you will apply, if you have not done so already. As an applicant, we hope that you will return to these resources often to guide you on your path to WCU.
