HOW DO I SCHEDULE MY CAMPUS TOUR?

We love getting visitors on campus! The best way to see if Wayland is right for you is by coming to campus and seeing what being a Pioneer feels like. WBU Enrollment Coaches will show you around campus, introduce you to professors, meet athletic coaches, and have you speak with financial aid.

WHAT ARE THE DEADLINES FOR APPLICATIONS?

It's best to call the WBU campus in which you are interested in attending to learn about deadlines as they vary by campus and degree program. For the Plainview campus, applications are actually accepted until the first day of class. Consideration for admission to the university, however, is not possible without our having received all official documents.

HOW DO I REACH THE ATHLETIC STAFF?

All athletic staff may be reached through emails and phone as noted on our athletics website. Too, you can send your athletic and contact information to the coaches by completing our Prospective Athlete Form.

HOW CAN I AFFORD COLLEGE?

More than 95% of WBU students rely on a combination of scholarships, grants, work-study, and loans to pay for tuition, room, and meals. The main thing to remember is that you don't have to find all of the aid all by yourself. Our Admissions and Financial Aid staff will help you in navigating the process to apply for assistance. Check out our Financial Aid information.

DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR EVERYTHING AT ONCE?

After you have enrolled in your classes for the semester or term, you will receive a statement or bill showing your balance. You may pay all of the balance by the first day of classes or you may pay your balance in three payments as directed by the WBU Business Office.

WHAT MUST I DO TO MAINTAIN MY ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS?

Scholarship maintenance is dependent on your semester's grade point average (GPA).

If you receive a scholarship for one semester but fail to maintain the required GPA for that scholarship, you will not be awarded the scholarship for your next semester.
