The Early Decision Plan is for those students who have determined W&J to be their first choice college. A completed application for admission, along with the Early Decision Request Form, must be submitted to the Office of Admission by December 1 of the senior year. Candidates will be notified of the status of their application by December 15. Each student accepted under this plan will be required to submit an advance deposit of $300 by January 15. This deposit is nonrefundable and will be credited to the first-term billing. If accepted under the Early Decision Plan, the student agrees to withdraw all applications to other colleges.
The early action application deadline permits those students who have submitted a completed application by January 15 to be notified prior to the regular decision deadline. Unlike early decision, early action is nonbinding, and the regular application procedure is followed.
The Early Admission Plan is for those high school juniors who possess high academic credentials and desire to enter college one year early. Evaluation of the candidate's academic and social maturity is based on the following:
- Student must submit parents' written approval.
- Student must submit written approval and a recommendation from his/her high school principal.
- A personal interview will be held with a member of the Office of Admission.
- Records of application, College Board scores, and other data will constitute a complete file, whether full- or part-time student.
- Preference will be given to academically high-ranking students.
- It is the responsibility of the student to secure a high school diploma upon completion of the first year of college.
The Regular Decision Plan is for students who wish to apply to W&J by the application deadline of March 1. Regular decision is a nonbinding application, and regular decision applicants will have an admission decision by April 1. However, if the student would like to submit a nonbinding application prior to the March 1 deadline, the College recommends that he or she consider the Early Action Plan.
Please refer to the timetable located within this section for the various notification dates. A decision is made after receipt of the application, official high school transcript, standardized test results, letter of recommendation, activities list, and personal statement. Accepted applicants are asked to confirm their intent to enroll by submitting an advance deposit of $300 accompanied by the Admission Reply Form no later than May 1. This nonrefundable deposit is credited toward the first-term billing.
