Freshman Applicants


You must submit the following information, prior to the deadline, to complete the application requirements:

    • $50 Application fee
    • Undergraduate Application
    • Official SAT or ACT score reports - waived for 2021*
    • Official High School Transcript
  • After all the application requirements have been met, your application will be reviewed for admission to WSSU.
  • If you are admitted and still in high school, you must submit an official final high school transcript upon
    graduation.
  • Admission to WSSU does not guarantee admission to any academic program. Several of our academic majors require you to apply for admission to the major during your sophomore year. Be sure to review the requirements for your major through our Online Undergraduate Catalog.

* Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the UNC Board of Governors waived the standardized testing requirements for the 2021 application. While you may submit existing scores, they will not impact the review of your application.
