Applying and Deadlines
How to Apply
Your application must be complete before an admissions decision will be made. A complete application includes the following items:
- A completed online application
- A non-refundable application fee of $50
- Official copy of high school transcripts that includes grades 9 - 12
- Official college transcripts submitted directly to WSSU from each previously attended institution
You may be asked to submit a "Criminal Background Check" as required by the UNC system. This can take additional time to process. Your application may go to Conduct Review if applicable.
Official high school and college transcripts should be mailed to:
Office of Admissions
Winston-Salem State University

601 S. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive
Winston-Salem, NC 27110
When to Apply
Transfer students are encouraged to apply early and complete all application requirements as soon as possible. The timeframe to process the application and complete the transfer credit process may take up to six weeks depending on the number of credit hours that have been completed, the number of institutions where credit hours were earned, and the term entry for which you applied.
Applicants will be notified in writing of their admissions decision. WSSU continues to accept applications on a rolling basis until the class is filled.
