Undergraduate Admissions

Thank you for your interest in joining the Wilberforce family and becoming a part of history by attending the nation’s oldest private historically black college or university.

At Wilberforce, we offer three types of admissions programs:

  • Undergraduate

  • The CLIMB Program

  • Graduate

Our general undergraduate admissions program is for traditional students starting their college experience or transferring from another university. Our CLIMB program is for non-traditional students seeking to obtain their degree through alternative methods after time out of academia. Our graduate program is for students wishing to continue their education and obtain their Master’s Degree in one of our Graduate Level fields of study.
