Eliminating the Anxiety of the Admission Decision
We consider the application for admission to be kind of a dialog and not a pinnacle "you're in or you're out" moment in time. As such, we believe that we should always expect that more information can and will be submitted throughout the year. We understand that when new information is available, we should go back and see if it impacts a decision we've already made as well. There simply should be no surprises, no delays, and no anxiety with an application to UWF.
We have pledged our admission representatives to evaluate applications that become complete within 24-48 hours of actually receiving the last piece of required information. Barring weekends, that means that when you hurry to get the application contents to us, we're going to hurry to get back in touch with you. Often, that response is literally a couple of days.
Admissible @ UWF
Silly as it sounds, those students who are admitted get notified in writing with instructions on the next steps of the process. Please help us encourage students to read past the word "Congratulations" on the letter to capture the rest of the important information contained in that material. All the materials supplied in support of the application are considered, along with spacial and resource availability at the University, to provide an admission decision for the term in the best interest of the student for long-term academic success.
Not Yet Admissible @ UWF
When an application for admission is not considered admissible, an additional assessment is initiated. A 2nd review of the application contents is commissioned internally by the representative responsible for the recruitment in your child's region.
Many students will be close to being admissible, but there is some element of the application preventing us from actually making that decision. That could be a slightly lower GPA than we might wish or a subscore on a test that is too low for us to admit at the moment - but in time, this person stands a good chance of overcoming that challenge. Students can also consider transferring into UWF from a local state or community college with their AA as another option.
