Admissions

  • Visit Us

    The best way to learn about Worcester State University is to walk around our beautiful campus and talk with members of our vibrant community—students, professors, and admissions staff alike.   

  • Campus Tours and Information Sessions

    Campus Tours
    You can take a student-guided campus tour during the fall semester, Monday through Friday at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

    Fall semester campus tours will conclude on December 3. Please check back for spring semester availability starting in early February.

    For information about scheduling a group tour, please refer to our Group Tours tab.  

    Individual Student Appointments

    If you are a senior in high school or a potential transfer student, you can request a one-on-one meeting with our admissions staff. If you have questions that can’t be answered via email or over the phone, we’re more than happy to talk with you in person. If you bring your transcripts, we can determine if you’re an admissible candidate, prepare preliminary transfer credit evaluations, and offer academic advice.

    *Admissions counselors will be traveling frequently during the months of September and October so appointments will be offered on a limited basis. Please contact your counselor directly to determine their availability. 

    Fall Open Houses

    Open house is a perfect opportunity to meet with our faculty, staff, and current students. You also will have the chance to discuss the admissions process, financial aid, residence life, student services, campus activities, and academics. Each academic department will be represented so that you can explore all our majors. Full campus tours are included as part of every open house event.

    Fall Open Houses have concluded for 2016. Please check back next spring for information on fall 2017 events.

    Group Tours

    Are you a high school counselor, teacher, or leader of a college-bound organization interested in bringing a group of high school students to our campus? To better assist you with planning your visit, please read through our group tour guidelines and complete our Group Tour Request Form.

    2016-2017
    We have reached capacity for group tours for the fall 2016 semester. Please connect with us in January for spring 2017 group tour requests.
     

    General group tour guidelines:

    • Group tour requests can be made for Tuesdays, Thursdays, or Fridays from 10 a.m. -12 p.m. or 1-3 p.m. An Admissions Information Session is also available in conjunction with the campus tour. Tours are not available on weekends or on holidays when WSU is closed.
    • In order to plan the best visit possible and to secure a student tour guide, we ask that you submit your request 3 weeks in advance.
    • We can accommodate groups of up to 40 students. Tours are geared toward high school students.
    • Although we are not able to provide complementary lunch to all of our visitors, groups are welcome to have lunch on their own in our brand new dining facility in Sheehan Hall. Once your group tour has been confirmed, we will send you information on how to make lunch arrangements.

    If you have any questions, please contact Christopher Dooley at grouptours@worcester.edu or 508-929-8040.
