At Waldorf College, we have an open admissions policy. Applications and enrollment are accepted throughout the calendar year.
Waldorf provides equal educational opportunity and does not discriminate with respect to race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, physical handicap, age, marital status, sex or status such as a disabled veteran.
Requirements for admission into Waldorf online degree programs include:
Students must have access to the Internet and an e-mail account in order to complete a program of study at Waldorf. If personal Internet service is unavailable, you are encouraged to contact local libraries, schools, or a public business to locate access to the Internet. Microsoft Word and Adobe Reader are also required. Other Microsoft Office products may be required for select courses.
International Students who are citizens of a country where English is not the primary language are required to submit one of the following prior to admission:
TOEFL and IELTS scores are not required from International students who have:
Transcripts not in U.S. equivalency must be translated through a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) approved translating service. Please visit the NACES website for more information.
Students who cannot meet the above requirements because of exceptional circumstances, may petition to be accepted on a conditional basis. If accepted, the student will be permitted to take a maximum of four courses on a non-degree seeking student basis. If after taking four courses, the student has a 3.0 GPA or higher, the student may be accepted as a degree-seeking student. If the student’s GPA is lower than 3.0, the student’s enrollment at Waldorf College will be terminated.
Waldorf requires that students show proof of successful completion of their state’s requirements for high school graduation. The home school student is responsible for compliance with all requirements of their state. An official transcript is required to demonstrate that high school graduation requirements are met. The following are examples of the required transcript:
