Yes. As of now, all admissions functions are continuing as normal.
Woodbury has a rolling admission policy and prospective students may apply at any time.
While it is difficult to chart a course given all the uncertainties, our base plan is to start in-person classes in Fall 2020, assuming the virus is mainly contained. Clearly, if we implement in-person classes, the procedures will depend on what federal, state and local governments will dictate in terms of social distancing, and/or student and employee testing constraints. Thus, a team is examining ways we could increase the separation of our students in labs, classrooms, studios, dorms, etc.
Woodbury University is test optional and will not need your SAT or ACT test score to complete your file.
Yes, there have been a few changes in Housing. Please read the latest update below:
Dear Housing Applicants,
We thank you for your continued patience as we continue to navigate these uncertain times.
We know that for many of you, housing is an integral part of your college experience. We want to continue providing you with an option for on-campus housing while also ensuring that we keep the safety and wellbeing of our resident’s priority.
The university has decided that all housing spaces will be converted to singles for the Fall 2020 term to maintain physical distancing. All rooms, regardless of size, will be priced at $5,613 per semester (the single room rate).
We know that for many students, this change in price may be difficult. To that end, we want to make sure that students are aware of this change in the process before assigning students, so we are asking that every student confirm that they are still interested in housing given these changes. Please confirm your interest in housing by 8 am May 26th by using the following link: Interest Link
We will also be instituting the following additional changes:
Housing will also be:
Our housing team is working hard to continue to provide opportunities for residents to engage and interact with each other. Please make sure that you are checking your email for additional information as it becomes available.

There are many things we still don’t know about how the current COVID-19 pandemic will impact our daily lives. Unfortunately, that uncertainty also includes the potential impact to on-campus housing. Therefore, we are deciding to wait until at least May 15th to provide an update on housing assignments. We ask that you be patient with us while we work to provide a safe and positive environment for our residential students.
No. As of now, this does not change our plans for any decisions coming from our office.
Please note that in response to evolving events surrounding the coronavirus, our previously scheduled in-person placement exams, SOARs (Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration), and Graduate Orientation will instead be held online. This is a precautionary measure we are taking to ensure the safety of our community; to date, there are no known cases of COVID-19 at Woodbury.
You will receive additional details in the coming weeks from your admissions counselor.
Yes. We have extended the enrollment deposit deadline from May 1 to June 1.
Yes, you can defer your admission for up to one year.
Woodbury University will continue to process I-20’s for all qualifying students. You will receive an email from your admissions counselor outlining the next steps once you have submitted all required documents for I-20 processing. If you have questions regarding this process, please contact your admissions counselor.
Woodbury University continues to welcome students from around the world. We are closely monitoring the situation and will adhere to any decisions made by the US government.
In all circumstances, such students should avoid travel to China or Iran at this time.
Additionally, it is essential that such individuals maintain valid student status while waiting in the U.S. for their Woodbury program to begin and they become eligible to transfer to Woodbury for study here. Since this group would already be in the U.S., no new visa stamp would be needed from the U.S. consulate since a valid visa stamp is only needed at the time of entry into the U.S.
After admission to the program, Woodbury will advise this population upon receipt of a request for immigration documentation.
