Transcript Waiver Requests

Wilmington University adheres to policies regarding applicants who wish to waive transcripts from previously attended institutions. Applicants must submit their request in writing to the Director of Admissions. Requests must include the name of the institution, dates of attendance, and the reason for the request.

Transcripts may be waived for three reasons:

  1. The institution was not accredited at the time of the student’s attendance;

  2. The institution is no longer in existence and transcripts are unable to be retrieved; and...

  3. The student withdrew from courses prior to completing one term, as defined by that institution.

Requests are reviewed and investigated by the Director of Admissions and can take up to one month to complete.

Dismissals from Other Institutions

Wilmington University adheres to policies regarding academic and behavioral dismissals from other institutions by requiring applicants to submit a written description of the situation, outlining the circumstances on the application for admission. An admission decision is made by the Director of Admissions.


Wilmington University honors an open admissions policy and welcomes applications from all interested potential students.
