Have you taken classes at WSU before? If the answer is yes, you do not need to reapply for admission. You will only need to reactivate your file through the Registrar’s Office. You can find the online reactivation form here. If you are unsure of your status, call the Office of Admissions at 316-978-3085.
A minimum, 2.00 cumulative GPA on transfer work is necessary for admission. Students with a GPA below 2.00 will be denied but have the option to apply for exceptions and be admitted on a probationary status.

Students can apply for financial aid online at www.fafsa.ed.gov preferably before March 1 of the preceding academic year. Wichita State's school code is 001950.
If you need assistance filling out the application, you can make an appointment with a financial aid counselor at WSU. Students can apply for financial aid before they are admitted, but their aid will not be fully processed until they are fully admitted.
Individuals who have experienced a severe financial circumstance (layoffs, medical, divorce, etc.) are encouraged to speak with financial aid. Based on the circumstance, financial aid generally will counsel students to apply for a Special Circumstance evaluation. If deemed appropriate, WSU can re-evaluate a student's financial situation, and based on the evaluation, additional federal aid may be available to them.
Assistance is available at the Office of Financial Aid. Walk-in appointments are welcome, but appointments are preferred. You can visit them online at wichita.edu/financialaid, by phone at 316-978-3430 or in person on WSU's Main Campus on the 2nd floor of Jardine Hall.
First-time students and transfer students must meet with an academic adviser to create a class schedule and plan their academic futures. Enrollment is done online and your adviser will instruct with this process.
All students must attend orientation. Visit wichita.edu/orientation for details.
Payment of your tuition and fees must be done before you attend classes. You can pay fees online with a credit card or check. In-person payment can be paid with credit card, check or cash.
