Next Steps for Waitlisted or Denied Students

Student in Hunt Library

Information for Waitlisted Applicants

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 2020, we will notify students by June 15.

It is difficult to anticipate how many students we will offer acceptance to from the waitlist. For fall 2019, we were able to admit less than one percent of the students on the waitlist. Requesting a major change or providing updated information will not change a student’s current status.

Information for Denied Applicants 

Unfortunately, some students will not be considered competitive for this incoming class. If students are denied, we encourage them to consider applying in the future as a transfer student. We encourage you to review our article on transfer applicant resources here.
