Application for Admission

Application Information

Application Procedure

  1. Complete this online application. After you are finished, click the 'SUBMIT' button located on the left column of the application and follow the directions. Print a copy of the application agreement statement that appears after you submit the completed application for your records.

  2. Have your high school send an official transcript after graduation.

  3. Applicants under 21 years of age must have official scores from ACT or SAT submitted to Walters State. The ACT or SAT must have been taken no later than three years prior to the beginning date of classes of the term for which the application is being made. Dual enrollment students must take the ACT and show a minimum composite score of 21 or 3.0 high school GPA. Additionally, dual enrollment and advanced studies students who plan to enroll in English or math must meet minimal placement requirements on the applicable ACT subtest. Advance studies students who are not enrolling for an English or math course, basic police officer education students, and those students enrolling in technical or job-related courses are exempt from this requirement. Exempted students will, however, be required to submit these scores if they change to degree-seeking status prior to reaching the age of 21 years.

    Degree-seeking applicants 21 years of age or older are required to undergo placement assessment prior to enrollment. This assessment should be scheduled well in advance of registration through the Department of Counseling and Testing and may also apply to transfer students.

  4. If you are a transfer student from another college(s), have each college send a complete official transcript.

  5. Admission to the college does not guarantee admission to a specific program of study. Admission to certain programs must be approved by the division chair or director of the program (i.e., nursing, education, public safety, and computer science).

  6. Enter Selective Service information (on screen 3).

  7. Return completed application agreement statement to the address on the right.
