First Year Students

WJU seeks to admit applicants committed to a Christ-centered environment, who can demonstrate solid academic preparation reflected through their transcript and SAT/ACT scores, and who value a traditional undergraduate experience marked by campus community living and involvement. Although WJU does not set minimum academic GPA or standardized test criterion to apply, we practice selective admission. It is recommended that a high school student follow a competitive college preparatory plan that most high schools have established.

WJU Recommended Core Curriculum
4 years of English w/Literature and Composition
3 years of Math (minimum Algebra I & II, Geometry)
3 years of Science (Gen. Science & 2 of Biology, Chemistry or Physics)
3 years of Social Science (US & World History, Government/Economics)
2 years of one Foreign Language (Sign Language is accepted)
1-4 years of an Academic elective (Math/Science/Social Science)

An applicant's academic records, supporting documents, moral character, and willingness to comply with the standards and values of the University are considered before a final decision is made. An interview is recommended and may be required.

We look forward to learning more about what unique qualities make you standout as a candidate for admission to WJU!
