COVID-19 Updates:


-        Orientation: Our first-year programming office is currently working on moving all of our orientation dates for this summer to an online format for students. Those seniors who have registered for one of our original dates received an update from our first year programming office about the change to a virtual format. Information about orientation changes, including a FAQ section, can be found at: www.wichita.edu/orientation

-        Merit Scholarship Deadline: At this time, our priority deadline is still set for November 1st, however this may change with the cancellation of the June SAT, and the likely cancellation of the June ACT (not currently cancelled as of this email being written). Financial aid has not yet stated whether the date will be changed.

-        Financial Aid Changes: If you are experiencing additional hardships due to the pandemic, contact the Office of Financial Aid for possible adjustments to your federal aid application (FAFSA) – [email protected]

o   May 1 is still the acceptance deadline for scholarships.
