Admissions Status

Students may enroll at Waldorf University under one of the following:

  • Temporary:  Application submitted but has not been approved and evaluated for transfer credit.
  • Conditional:  Application approved and transfer credit evaluated based on copies of transcripts.
  • Accepted:  Application approved, transfer credit evaluated, and all required official transcripts on file.

Conditional admission allows undergraduate applicants to enroll in a program for up to twelve (12) semester credits based on copies pending the receipt of official high school transcript or equivalent (if transferring in less than 12 semester credits) or official post-secondary transcripts.  Conditional admission allows graduate applicants to enroll in a program for up to six (6) semester credits based on copies pending the receipt of official post-secondary transcript(s)

Federal Student Aid is not available to students under Temporary Admission Status.

Students who wish to begin enrolling in courses immediately after their application has been received may do so under Temporary Admissions Status and, while Temporary, may complete up to 12 credit hours. Once all official transcripts are received and evaluated, an Application Evaluation Report will be issued and, pending a favorable review, the student’s status will be changed to Accepted. Conditional Status is not available to students under Temporary Status.

When enrolling in courses while on Temporary status, the student is responsible to select courses that will fulfill the requirements of his/her selected program of study. Information on Waldorf program course requirements can be found on the Waldorf website. For assistance on course selection, students may contact the Assistant Registrar at

Before enrolling under Temporary status, the undergraduate student should make certain he/she meets the Waldorf admissions requirements of a high school transcript or GED. The graduate student must have a conferred bachelor's degree. Waldorf only accepts transfer academic credit from institutions accredited by agencies that are recognized by the Department of Education or, for non-U.S. institutions, approved by the World Education Service (W.E.S.).

A Waldorf transcript cannot be issued while a student is on Temporary status. A Waldorf transcript may be issued for students on Conditional Status but will not list transfer credit.  Students with Accepted Status may be issued a Waldorf transcript listing all institutional credit.

Falsification or omission of information on University application may be cause for rescinding admission acceptance.
