Important Update: COVID-19

West Chester University continues to be proactive in its response to combat COVID-19, and is taking every precaution possible to ensure the health and safety of all students, faculty, staff, and visitors to its campus. That being said, WCU has decided to cancel campus tours and information sessions, Accepted Student Days, and other admissions-related programming. The Office of Admissions is still available for you to connect with and to answer your questions. Please email us at, and we will respond as quickly as possible.

Important Update: Test Optional for Fall 2021

Submitting SAT and/or ACT scores will be an optional, not required, part of the admissions process for students applying to attend West Chester University in the Fall of 2021. This one-year change to the admissions process is being made by the University in direct response to the cancellation of all spring testing dates across the nation due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
