  1. Proof of undergraduate degree form an accredited institution
  2. Transcripts from degree granting institutions
  3. Completed application
  4. Cumulative 3.0 grade point average (GPA) on previous college credit. Students with a GPA below a 3.0 on a 4.0 grading scale will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by a review committee
  5. Two letters of recommendation and a completed recommendation form from people qualified to judge the applicant’s professional capabilities, capacity to complete graduate study, and character
  6. Current resume
  7. A word-processed Statement of Purpose (minimum of 500 words – not to exceed 1000 words) stating your professional goals, and how this will bring you to the realization of these goals
  8. Students whose native language is not English must have a score of 173 (computer-based) or more, or 500 (paper-based) or more on the TOEFL (some exceptions apply)


Graduates who have earned their bachelor’s degree from William Penn University are eligible for a special scholarship, the WPU Loyalty Scholarship. As a WPU graduate from the undergraduate program, you can save $100 per credit hour while you earn your master’s degree in either of our Graduate Study programs.

Our online and evening courses are delivered in multiple ways, from the 8-week blended model, where your campus classes intersect with online assignments, to a fully online program. Technology is a focal point in today’s educational world. In the 8-week blended model, classes meet for two hours at a time, while some assignments will be completed online. In the online model, students will take 8-week classes in an asynchronous online format.
