Application Procedures


High school students may apply to Wilson College at the beginning of their senior year.  Students who have graduated from high school may apply for admission within a year of their intended semester of enrollment.  Wilson operates under a rolling admissions policy, which means the Admissions Office will review your application file as soon as we receive all the required documents.  Wilson seeks students who complete a college preparatory curriculum that includes four units of English, four units of history, three units of math (Algebra 1 and 2 and Geometry), two units of the same foreign language, and two units of natural science with labs.  Students who have at least a 3.0 GPA in a college preparatory curriculum at a regionally accredited high school are not required to submit SAT or ACT scores.  Each applicant will be assigned an admissions counselor who will assist them with the application process and continue guiding them until classes begin.
