Important Enrollment Information

  • Readmit Students

Students who withdraw from the university must follow the readmit process. These students should be referred to the admissions office in case they have outstanding balances or a suspension hold that has not expired. These instances will stop the application from being processed. Students who have not attended another college/university since leaving WSSU are not required to pay and application fee. Student who have attended another college/university since leaving WSSU must submit a $50 application fee, along with official transcripts from the other institution(s).

Readmit students must create their RAMAdmissions portal account to submit an application.

  • Validation/ Confirmation of Schedule

Students must determine how they will pay their balance with Student Accounts to avoid their schedules being purged on the established census dates. In some instances, financial aid does not completely cover the balance, which may require students to set up a payment plan and pay the first installment to confirm registration. Students should contact Student Accounts to discuss available options.

  • Insurance

Students enrolled in six or more credit hours per semester are required to have health insurance, unless they are a distance learner. Students with private insurance plans may waive the university’s insurance plan by completing the health insurance waiver form. There is a deadline for waiving insurance. If the deadline is missed, the fee will have to be paid. A lack of insurance will result in the student’s schedule being purged.
