SEND US YOUR FINAL TRANSCRIPT(S)

Your offer of admission is contingent upon receipt of your official final high school transcript.  If you have taken college courses through PSEO, CCP or dual enrollment, you will also need to send your official final college transcript(s).  Transcripts must arrive in a sealed envelope.  Faxed transcripts are not considered official. All transcripts must be received by the day you move into the residence halls, or for commuters, the first day of classes.

HAVE YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS PUBLISHED IN THE NEWSPAPER (OPTIONAL)

You may choose to have your acceptance to the College published in your local newspaper. Please complete our Office of Public Relations News Release Form and submit your information for publication.

LOOKING AHEAD: TUITION AND BILLING

New incoming students will receive an electronic statement available online through WILpay. The statement will be available to view and make online payments for Fall 2017 by July 1st. Students have the option to pay in full or set up a 5 month Installment Payment Plan (IPP) with the first payment being due July 20, 2017. Students will re-enroll in the IPP each semester. Students will need to add a Parent Pin to allow parents to sign in to make payments, view their student’s account, and receive email notifications.
