First Year Students
WJU seeks to admit applicants committed to a Christ-centered environment, who can demonstrate solid academic preparation reflected through their transcript and SAT/ACT scores, and who value a traditional undergraduate experience marked by campus community living and involvement. Although WJU does not set minimum academic GPA or standardized test criterion to apply, we practice selective admission. It is recommended that a high school student follow a competitive college preparatory plan that most high schools have established.
WJU Recommended Core Curriculum
