Application Fee
For visiting students only, a new application with the $50 application fee must be filed for each semester.  This amount will be applied to tuition and fees for the winter session upon course registration for undergraduate visiting students only.  If winter session registration is not completed, the application fee is non-refundable.

Application Deadline
The deadline for undergraduate and graduate applications is Friday, December 6, 2019.  All supporting documentation (see below) must be received by the Undergraduate and Graduate admissions offices by Friday, December 6, 2019. For post deadline application questions, please contact Undergraduate Admissions at or 973.720.2125.

Graduate Non-Degree Students 
For students who already have a BA/BS degree and wish to take undergraduate courses at the post-baccalaureate level, they must complete the Graduate Non-degree application, and submit proof of a bachelor's degree.  Graduate non-degree winter applicants must also use the Graduate Non-degree application.  All supporting documentation must be received by the graduate admissions office by Friday, December 6, 2019.

Upon receipt of an application and required supporting documentation, students will be notified of their admission by email and written correspondence from the Undergraduate Admissions Office.  Personal login information and a WPUNJ student email address will be provided in acceptance notification.

If a Winter Session course has pre-requisites, it is the student's responsibility to contact the academic department for a pre-requisite override. The Admissions Offices are not able to waive pre-requisites. Please see the William Paterson University policy below to gain permission to register for a Winter Session course. Such permission may only be granted after receiving notification of acceptance by the Undergraduate or Graduate Admissions Office.

 Supporting Documentation

  • Submit unofficial transcripts showing you are in good academic standing at your home college and have completed the equivalent of the WPU course prerequisite at your school (this can be a computer printout of your grades from your student account which you can email). For example, if you wish to take Calculus II at William Paterson University, you must show proof that you completed Calculus I at your college. To see if your course has a pre-requisite, check the Undergraduate Catalog.
  • Submit a letter of permission from your home college allowing you to take the course at WPU. Visiting students should direct unofficial transcripts or grades and the letter of permission from their home institution by either fax, e-mail, regular mail or in-person to the address below (email recommended for fastest service):

                    William Paterson University
                    Office of Undergraduate Admissions
