Undergraduate Admissions

Choosing a university is not just about choosing a place you'd like to live; it's about choosing the community you want to join. It's not just about finding a school with the degree program you want; it's about finding faculty and fellow students with whom you can connect and collaborate. Those relationships and community will shape who you will become, and we believe you'll find the absolute best of both at WCU. Explore more about our community here.
