The following responses come from LaJoyce Gwen Brown, Interim Senior Director Undergraduate Admissions and Orientation,Wayne State University.
1. Describe your institution and what type of student is the best fit.
Students who want more from college than a degree — students who want an experience — thrive at Wayne State University. After choosing from hundreds of degree options, our students live and learn on a bustling campus surrounded by Detroit, with its exceptional entertainment and cultural opportunities.
Wayne State’s urban location offers unique access to a real-world education. Lessons go beyond lectures to hands-on research in high-tech labs, internships with nearby corporations and fieldwork within the community.
2. What are your admission requirements?
Because good students come from different backgrounds with varied academic experiences, Wayne State University reviews each applicant individually. Admission is based on a student’s GPA, ACT or SAT score, and any supporting documentation that may be requested or provided. The journey starts online at apply.wayne.edu.
3. Why is post-secondary training important?
When compared to people with just a high school degree, college graduates earn about $1 million more over the course of their working lives. Best of all: College graduates are paid that extra million not by doing a job but by succeeding in their chosen career.
But college isn’t just about making bank. Wayne State students try new things, discover hidden talents, meet interesting people and make lifelong friends on campus.
When students are willing to put in the time and effort, Wayne State is eager to help them succeed. With the lowest tuition rates among the state’s three research universities, WSU offers an outstanding value — as well as scholarships and financial aid programs to help make college affordable.
4. As the parent of a middle school student, what steps can I take now to help my child succeed in the future?
Taking school seriously now will help your student get where they want to go in the future. Encourage them to sign up for advanced courses and work hard toward great grades. This means participating in class and forming study groups to fortify lessons. Well-rounded students go beyond the books through sports, band, theater, student government — any extracurricular activity that grabs their interest and helps them soar.
A smart way to focus your child’s eye on the future is to show them what’s ahead. Come to Midtown for a campus visit. Walking tours are led by current Wayne State students who will offer inside information and answer questions candidly as they guide you through classrooms, libraries, labs and residence halls.
