Request an official copy of any and all transcripts from previously attended institutions to be sent to the Admissions Office. Transcripts may be sent through Parchment to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to Office of Admissions, 1111 Main Street, Wayne, NE 68787.
Tips for applying online:
- You will need an active email address to begin your application.

4. Apply for Financial Aid and Scholarships
Apply for Financial Aid via the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Make sure to add Wayne State College's federal school code to your FAFSA: 002566.
5. Complete Student Health Form

6. Apply for Campus Housing
7. Enroll in Classes
Once you have been admitted, you will receive a notice about your next steps. You may contact the Admissions Office to schedule a registration appointment. We will schedule a time with a faculty member in your major area.
As a transfer student, you will be able to register for classes at the same time as current students. If you have an A.A. or A.S. degree from an accredited community college in Nebraska, you likely already meet our general education requirements.
Spring Semester - Registration typically begins in early November.
Fall Semester - Registration typically begins in early April.
Transfer College Credits
You may transfer up to 66 credit hours from any accredited community college, but you must have earned a “C-” or better at a regionally accredited institution. If you are transferring from a partner school, Wayne State may have already made agreements for your credits to transfer, depending on your program of study.
