Admission and Enrollment


The Admissions staff along with Advisors in the Student Services Office at Washburn Tech offer many services for applicants and current students. An established application process makes for seamless transition from enrollment to admission. Easy access to technical education is possible due to August and January start dates for many programs and courses.  

Full-time admission counselors are available to assist applicants through the application and enrollment processes. They are skilled in providing professional assistance to both traditional and non-traditional students. Of the current, approximately 1,350 students, almost half are adult students re-entering the classroom environment. Washburn Tech Career Navigators/Advisors also monitor and support our students as they progress through their programs of study. Admitted students in need of accommodations are welcome and staff are available to provide assistance.

Enrollment Process

Applicants who wish to apply for admission to Washburn Tech need to have the abilities necessary to benefit from instruction in a particular occupational field. Prospective students are required to take an ACCUPLACER Admissions Test and pass with the necessary scores, for their desired technical program before they are eligible to enroll. Applicants may only enroll in one technical program at a time. Exceptions to this may be considered upon special request to Student Services.  Applicants who have alternative tests scores such as ACT, ASSET, SAT, TABE, and WorkKeys, or Bachelors or Associates degrees should consult with a recruiter or advisor to determine if they are qualified for their chosen technical program. Students must be enrolled no later than the beginning of the 3rd day of class any exception must go through the Associate Director of Tech Admissions.
