Applicants for an online degree will need to submit a handful of items along with the application form. These include:

  • 2 letters of recommendation
  • Official transcripts showing completed degrees earned since secondary school
  • Video and  written essays that allow us to get to know you just a bit more personally
  • A $75 application fee

The letters of recommendation must be from professional sources - not family or friends. They both should be obtained from individuals who can tell us about your ability to excel with graduate-level work and can give some insight into your motivation and work ethic. The first will come from a pastor in your church and the second one will be from a professor. If it’s been more than 4 years since you’ve been in school, you can have an employer fill out this recommendation. If you have other questions about the recommendation, you can always contact our team.

Electronic transcripts can be sent to onlinelearning@wts.edu. Hard copies of transcripts should be sent to this address:
