Applying to Western
The application process for admission to Western provides you with the opportunity to share information about yourself that goes beyond transcripts and test scores. Your application is reviewed by the Admissions Office and may be reviewed by the Campus Admissions Review Committee as well. Western aims not only to assess academic achievement, but also to evaluate rigor of academic history, leadership potential, diversity of experience, the depth of participation in extracurricular activities and your overall interest in attending Western.
Our central focus is that all applicants receive personal consideration toward success, both at Western and in their futures.
