What will I need to bring with me so that I can receive an Instant Decision?

Students who are current high school seniors are able to receive an instant decision during their visit as long as you complete an online application at least 24 hours before the scheduled visit day, and bring the following:

  • 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.

Please note: Instant Decisions will be granted for general admissions into the University and are not available for select competitive programs with additional admissions requirements (such as the pharmacy guaranteed seat program, some health science programs, and majors within our Division of Performing Arts).

Due to volume, the University is unable to offer Instant Decisions to students who schedule a campus visit on weekends.
