- Western Michigan University has adopted a test-optional policy. However, if you graduated less than two years before you plan to enroll at WMU, you may strengthen your application by submitting self-reported ACT or SAT scores.
Transcripts are considered official when they are submitted directly to WMU by the college, university or high school or when they are issued within 90 days and hand delivered in a sealed envelope by the student.
When to apply
While the dates above are deadlines, we recommend that you submit your application and required documents six to eight months before you intend to transfer to WMU. Applicants are reviewed on a rolling basis, and students will be notified of decisions approximately two weeks after completing their application and submitting required materials. Admitted students must make an appointment to meet with an academic advisor prior to being able to register for classes. Our transfer students are given priority for registration dates based on the number of transfer credit hours completed.
