Waitlist: Next Steps

Student in Hunt Library

Due to the competition of our applicant pool, we unfortunately were not able to admit all the well-qualified students who applied. These students should indicate their interest in remaining on the waitlist through their wolfPAW account. At this time we suggest students on the waitlist make plans to enroll at another institution. If we can offer admissions for fall 2019, we will notify students by June 15th.

It is difficult to anticipate how many students we will offer acceptance to from the waitlist. For fall 2018, we were able to admit less than 1 percent of the students on the waitlist. Requesting a major change or providing updated information will not change a student’s current status.
