  • Official high school transcript (in a sealed envelope from the high school)
  • Official SAT/ACT scores submitted, if not listed on the high school transcript
    • Scores may be printed at Wilkes if you know your login information for either CollegeBoard or ACT.

Instant Decisions are not available for the pharmacy guaranteed seat program and some health science programs, as they may require a secondary application for acceptance into these competitive programs.
