WCU waives application fees for 2022
Western Carolina University officials are waiving admission application fees for both undergraduate and graduate programs for students wanting to enter the university during spring 2022, summer 2022 and fall 2022 academic semesters.
“Because of the economic impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on many households across the state, we thought it was important that WCU waive these fees for next year,” said Mike Langford, director of undergraduate admissions. “Especially during these trying times, we want to ensure that the doors of opportunity to higher education are open to all students, regardless of their economic situations.”
The $65 waiver does not apply to additional fees that university programs may require to be accepted into their programs.
Students wishing to enter undergraduate or graduate programs can receive more information by visiting in person on campus Oct. 30 or Nov. 20. Students are also encouraged to meet WCU admissions staff during several “Western on Tour” events scheduled throughout the next couple of months. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
To register for any of the Western on Tour events go to go.wcu.edu/reg-events.
