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.

    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 and staff. You also will have the chance to discuss the admissions process, financial aid, residence life, student services, campus activities, and academics. Full campus tours are included as part of every open house event.

    2015 Fall Open House dates are Saturday, October 17 and Saturday, November 14. 

    The program begins promptly at 9 a.m. and is approximately 3 hours long. Advanced registration is appreciated.
