Often mistaken for a private university because of its many program options, beautiful campus and commitment to education, Washburn University (WU) is a public university that welcomes students seeking an education to prepare them for the future. WU believes in building an interactive relationship between community and campus, and students will benefit from this close-knit, local approach.
If you’re looking for a university where you can complete your bachelor’s degree, Washburn offers a variety of academic programs, including Anthropology, Finance and History. However, Washburn also has something for everybody by offering over 200 programs. Within these, students can earn an associate’s, master’s or juris doctor degree, licensure or certification.
Students interested in applying can complete the degree-seeking admissions application. This application will also qualify you for WU scholarships. Along with the application, students should submit transcripts, test scores, and the application fee.
WU recognizes that sometimes meeting the cost of tuition can be difficult, so the school offers financial aid in the forms of grants, loans and scholarships. Students should begin by filling out a FAFSA form. Grants can also be applied for via contacting the financial aid office.
Located in Topeka, Kansas, on a large and well-cultivated campus, Washburn provides an active college life beyond the classroom. Students can join a variety of different clubs within recreational, departmental or mutual interest categories. Washburn also supports a thriving Greek life.
50% of students gave Washburn University 5 stars overall.
Mostly the school is OK for younger students, not so much for non-traditional students. Also no extra support for students struggling in Math. Math program not good, unless you are strong in Math. Most memorable experience being appointed to the Criminal Justice Honor Society, For prospective students be sure you have your math classes knocked out before you get to Washburn.
I think Washburn University is great! People are so nice, and friendly. Even though I am a first generation student, and I barely know very little about college, I am thankful for the students, and staff at Washburn University. That classes are do easy going, and the teachers are amazing.
