Who should use this application?
Regardless of the number of college credits earned while in high school, you are considered a first-year student for admission and scholarship purposes as long as you have not enrolled in college course work after high school or GED completion.
Students can choose to apply by Western’s Early Action Deadline or by the Regular Decision Deadline:
- Early Action Deadline: Students who complete their application for admission and scholarships by November 1 are guaranteed an Admissions response by December 31 as well as expedited scholarship review and financial aid notification if they are admitted. Students admitted to Western via Early Action still have until May 1 to confirm their intent to enroll.
- Regular Decision Deadline: January 31 is the last day to submit your application for admission and scholarships to Western before it’s marked late. On-time applicants get full consideration for Western's merit scholarships. January 31 is also the priority deadline for filing the FAFSA.
Please note that housing priority is based on when you submit your first-year student application for admission.
