 Summer Visiting Student Documentation

 After a student applies on-line through the admissions office link above, please follow the steps below to submit your visiting student paperwork. 

  • Submit unofficial transcripts showing you are in good academic standing at your home college and have completed the equivalent of the WPU course prerequisite at your school (this can be a computer printout of your grades from your student account which you can email). For example, if you wish to take Calculus II at William Paterson University, you must show proof that you completed Calculus I at your college. To see if your course has a prerequisite, check the Undergraduate Catalog.
  • Submit a letter of permission from your home college allowing you to take the course at WPU (please state the WPU course name, number, and section number that you would like to register for).
  • Visiting students should direct unofficial transcripts or grades and the letter of permission from their home institution by either fax, e-mail, regular mail or in-person to the address below:
William Paterson University
Office of Undergraduate Admissions
Morrison Hall
300 Pompton Road
Wayne, NJ 07470
973.720.2125
973.720.2910 fax
admissions@wpunj.edu
  • Once the paperwork is received by admissions, the Office of Transfer Programs and Special Sessions will review the paperwork and assign a pre-requisite override.  All questions about overrides for summer session courses can be referred to summer@wpunj.edu
