Admission Deadlines

WOU features rolling admissions, meaning we review applications throughout the year and applicants can select the start term of their choice.

Priority Deadline: January 15
Scholarship Deadline: March 1

For those hoping to start Fall term, we will start sending out decisions on completed files starting September 1 of the previous year. Fall term applicants are encouraged to apply for admission by Jan. 15 so that they can access the scholarship application. After a file is complete and all application materials are received, we strive to complete the review process with two weeks. Notification of admission is shared via email.

Post-Baccalaureate Application

Students who have completed a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university may take additional undergraduate coursework before applying to a graduate program, seeking a second degree or for personal enrichment.

Students who received a bachelor’s degree from Western Oregon University can apply for post-bacc admission using our undergraduate admission application.
