Transferring to Wayland

We're excited you're transferring to Wayland!

A true education is more than just increasing your knowledge base. It's about applying what you have learned to real-life experience, putting those textbook theories to the test. Experience gives you a competitive edge in the job market. 

Whether it is research, performance or hands-on training, Wayland students benefit from working with one another and their professors to gain real-world, applicable experience. Our students learn problem solving and team work ... things that aren't taught in a 300-seat lecture hall. A Wayland education prepares students to take the next step, whether that is continuing on to grad school, or entering the job force --- like Kyle Rickman.


A chemistry and mathematics major, Kyle turned his education and personal research success into a job as an Analytical Nuclear Chemist for URENCO USA, a global energy company with operations in the U.S., Germany, Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

WBU students have the chance to excel by joining the Honors Program. Students develop research projects in line with their personal interests and work closely with a faculty advisor to conduct and present their research. This process prepares them for further study in graduate school and increases their personal knowledge and experience within their chosen field.
