Students should be sure to complete their application in full, as an incomplete application could affect eligibility for Johnson & Wales scholarship programs. Additional information submitted after the initial application has been received will not be considered for additional scholarships. For US students, eligibility for university need-based and federal aid is determined through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

In completing the application form, students must indicate the term in which they wish to enroll. Applications are accepted for terms beginning in the fall, winter and spring.

Early Action Admission (first-year applicants for fall term): Johnson & Wales University offers Early Action Admission, a non-binding application program for students who view JWU as one of their top choice schools. The application deadline for Early Action is November 1.

Rolling Admission (all terms): Rolling Admission offers JWU applicants a deadline-free application and decision process. Applications for the fall term received after November 1 will be reviewed on a rolling basis; Admissions will begin releasing decisions on December 15. Students are encouraged to complete the application process as soon as possible.

Certain bachelor's degree programs require successful completion of associate degree or equivalent. This acceptance is contingent upon receipt and evaluation of college transcripts.

After completing the application form, students are responsible for requesting that their high school guidance office forward to the university an official copy of the secondary school record for admissions consideration.

When possible, Johnson & Wales University would prefer to receive the applicant’s high school transcripts at the same time as the application for admission. Transfer students must also submit official transcripts from all high schools and colleges attended. For the first year of any new program, acceptance of transfer credit is contingent upon course scheduling.

Students applying for admission to a continuing education program at JWU’s Providence or Denver campuses should refer to those catalogs for admissions information.

In accordance with the applicable federal and state law, for students entering JWU who will need to participate in a food service internship, the student must be 18 years old to participate in the internship, unless the student obtains an acknowledgement from the proposed internship site acknowledging that the student is not yet 18 years of age and stating that the student will not engage in any “particularly hazardous occupation.”
