Wichita Area Technical College (WSU) Admissions

Admission Brief

WSU Tech has a seamless admission process designed to make it feel simpler and smoother for either a student or a parent. They have an open admission policy; if the candidate meets certain minimum requirements, they are eligible to apply. Applying for an admission does not charge you either! The candidate will only need to carry their high school diploma or a GED certificate if they want to be admitted. Since the admission process is rolling throughout the year, candidates may apply anytime. 

Application Process

Create an account

You may be required to create a myWSU account to keep track of any applications, financial transactions, admissions and programs that you’ve enrolled in. It’s important to know that WSU Tech does not charge the applicant for any application fees; all applications are free of cost.

Recommedations

Considered but not required

Requirements vary among different students, be it a freshman or a transfer student or otherwise. According to WSU Tech’s requirements for applying, we get a good understanding of what they want, which include a mandatory GPA. If the student is offered an admission, then they must provide financial resources to support graduate work in the U.S. High school transcripts are required if the student has had any schooling/university experience.

SAT/ACT scores are required in some programs. You will need to refer to the programs available and acquire more information about their requirements from their official website or by contacting their representatives.

Students will also require proficiency in the English language if they want to be accepted in the college. For non-native speakers, they will require their TOEFL results that reflect at least a score of 500 in a written test, 173 in a computer-based test and 94 on the internet test lest they cannot board their classes or will be subjected to additional practicing courses.
