Freshman Admission  


OPTION 1: ADMISSION BASED ON GRADES FROM HIGH SCHOOL
  • For this option, the SAT or ACT is NOT required for admission. 
  • This option is for students who have already graduated from high school (or will soon graduate from high school). 
  • Students who have attended another college or university will be considered for transfer admission -- even if they do not want transfer credit from their previous school.
  • Students must submit final high school transcripts.
  • Transcripts or examination results may be sent away for verification.  If selected, it may take some time for the verfication results to be returned.
  • The TOEFL or IELTS are not required to apply.   View English Requirement.

OPTION 2: ADMISSION BASED ON SAT OR ACT RESULTS
  • The SAT or ACT is required for this option. 
  • This is the best option for students who want admission before completing high school or do not meet the admissions requirements in Option 1.
  • If you have taken the SAT or ACT, you may apply during your final year of high school.
  • You may submit your test scores through the dropbox with your other admission materials for initial review. However, you must still submit your official test scores to us by the end of your first semester at Wichita State University, or you will not be allowed to enroll for subsequent terms.  Official score reports must come to us directly from the testing agency.
