High school counselors

As a high school counselor you are on the front lines for students when they're making decisions about beginning college or transferring institutions. The following resources will help you provide information to your students about Wayne State University. You can also catch up with WSU by reading our Fall Counselor Newsletter

Wayne State admission requirements

Freshman applicants can apply beginning in Sept. of their senior year. They'll be asking you to send their official transcript to us when they apply. An undergraduate application, official high school transcript and ACT or SAT scores are the only required documents an applicant must submit. Letters of recommendation are optional. There is a $25 application fee. 

If you're one of our Canadian counselors, check out the admission requirements for Canadian students here.

Opportunities to visit

Our admission counselors are out-and-about during the academic year. We will call you at the beginning of the school year to set up an initial visit to speak with your students. Direct students to our recruitment schedule so they know when we'll be in the area!

Campus tours

If you haven't been on campus, how can you love it as much as we do? Walking tours of campus are offered weekdays at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Leave some extra time during your visit to purchase Wayne State gear at the bookstore or grab a snack at one of our on-campus eateries (like Starbucks or Einstein Bagel Bros.). We enthusiastically welcome school groups to visit our campus as well - bring your class!

Open House

Tour campus and our neighborhood in Midtown Detroit, meet faculty members, chat with current students and explore our nearly 400 degree programs and majors during our fall and spring Open Houses.

Financial aid resources

Our Office of Student Financial Aid has put together a wealth of online resources for you as you coach your students through the financial aid process and assist them in budgeting for their college education. Feel free to contact our office if you have any questions.


We've provided information from our most asked about departments, schools and colleges in the presentations below. Feel free to browse through them and contact us if you have additional questions.
