• Undergraduate Application


  • Requirements

    During the application review, we consider many factors, including your:

    • Academic record
    • Work experience
  • How to Apply

    Step 1.


    For full consideration for admission and scholarships:

    • Apply as early as possible
    • Fully complete the application
    • Johnson & Wales is test optional and encourages submission of all test scores.
    • Any information submitted after your initial application will not be considered for additional scholarships. 

    Students are encouraged to apply online for quicker processing. Paper applications are also accepted.

  • Step 2.


    Submit your transcripts, diplomas and/or certifications from all high school/post-secondary schools so we can render an admissions decision.

    Choose your transcript request form:
    High School or GED (20K PDF)
    College/University (20K PDF)


    Submit proof of graduation (official final transcripts): It is the student’s responsibility to provide verification of high school/secondary school completion. Without verification, the student may not be allowed to register for the current term or continue enrollment and will be in jeopardy of losing his or her acceptance to the university as well as all financial aid. Refer to “Applying for Admission” in the JWU campus catalog online for information on verification documents.

  • Step 3.


    Transcripts/marksheets, test scores and bank statements must be ORIGINALS or true CERTIFIED COPIES. (Unofficial photocopies will not be accepted.)

    All documents not in English must be accompanied by a certified (notarized) translation.

    1. Proof of English proficiency: Submit Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) scores.
    2. A completed and signed International Student Financial Declaration Form (50K PDF).
    3. Certified bank statement or government sponsorship letter verifying financial support for one academic year (within 3 months of submitting your application)
