Note: Applicants who do not meet these admission requirements may be considered for admission by the director of Admissions or the Comprehensive Admission Review Committee. Please review the Comprehensive Review page for more information.
Application review for home-schooled students and students from non-accredited schools is a holistic process. Please provide as many of the following as possible for us to consider:
Priority Deadline*: January 15 of your senior year
Scholarship Deadline: March 1 of your senior year
*WOU features rolling admissions, meaning it reviews applications throughout the year and applicants can select the start term of their choice. For those hoping to start the next fall, 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, if accepted, they can access the scholarship application. After a file is complete and all application materials are received, Admissions strives to complete the review process with two weeks. Notification of admission is shared via email.
Students who do not meet the regular admission requirements may be asked to submit additional items. Please see our Comprehensive Review page for details.
Change of Entry Term
**If you plan to begin attending WOU during a term within the same academic year other than the one for which you applied, you must request a change of entry term in writing. Please send an email to Admissions at email@example.com to request a change in entry term.
