Apply for admission to an online major at Wichita State University using our easy application portal. Admissions are done on a rolling basis - as long as all application materials are received and processed, we will admit for the next semester.
We know that cost, value, affordability, scholarships and financial aid are important factors in the higher education search process. We're proud that WSU is one of the most affordable accredited research institutions in the state of Kansas.
Once you have completed your application for admission, you can work with the Financial Aid Team on everything from completing your FAFSA to setting up a payment plan or asking your employer for tuition assistance.

The School of Business requires that incoming students have a minimum 2.25 GPA, and the College of Applied Studies and the College of Health Professions has GPA requirements that vary depending on major.
Returning WSU Student
If you previously studied at Wichita State as an undergraduate degree-bound student (but not as a high school guest student, non-degree regular, non-degree open or college guest) and you would like to resume studying as an undergraduate after an absence, you do not need to apply for admission again.
Students whose previous enrollment was only in a non-degree category (high school guests, non-degree regular, non-degree open or college guests) who now wish to be degree bound, must apply for degree-bound admission. Apply at wichita.edu/apply.
If it has been less than two years since you last enrolled at WSU, you do not need to reactivate your file. You may visit with an advisor in your college for assistance in selecting classes and register/pay in the myWSU portal.
If it has been two years or longer since you last enrolled, you must submit an online reactivation form to the Register's Office before you can register for classes.
Once you have completed this process, please reach out to the advisor of your intended major:
