Johnson And Wales College Essay

Welcome to the graduate school admissions page. Here, you’ll find a step-by-step walkthrough of the graduate application process, plus a few helpful resources to make sure you have everything you need when applying to grad school at JWU.

Before You Apply

Go to the Graduate Degrees page, click the program you're interested in, and review your program’s complete course information to make sure you meet all the requirements. In addition, it’s a good idea to check the JWU College of Online Education’sComputer & Browser Requirements to ensure that you can fully participate in online learning at JWU.

Contact us at onlineadmissions@jwu.edu or 1-855-JWU-1881 if you have any questions regarding the prerequisites required for admission.

Apply Year-Round

Choose from four term start dates:
September • December • March • June

How to Apply

Step 1: Submit Your Free Application

Apply Online

Step 2: Submit Your Transcript

Request to have your transcripts, diplomas and/or certifications from all postsecondary schools mailed to JWU as soon as possible. Getting your transcripts in early will help us make an admissions decision sooner. If you completed your undergraduate degree at JWU, you do not need to submit an official transcript (Graduate Admissions will request this for you).

  • Sign electronically. This is the quickest and easiest method to submit your transcript(s). Upon application, your Online Admissions Associate will send you a link via Docusign to sign, which will allow JWU to request your transcript(s) on your behalf. (If your school requires additional information to process the request, you will be notified by the admissions team.)
  • OR download, print, and send the forms to your institution(s) by mail. Transcripts must be original on the institution’s letterhead and must be in a sealed envelope: College/University Transcript Request Form
    • If submitting your transcripts by mail, please send to: College of Online Education, Johnson & Wales University, 115 Cedar St., Providence, RI 02903
    • If your institution utilizes an electronic transcript delivery service, those may be emailed to: onlineadmissions@jwu.edu

*Note: If you have not yet connected with an Online Admissions Associate but are interested in starting the transcript-request process, fill out this form and JWU Online will send you a link to get started.

It is the student’s responsibility to provide verification of secondary school completion. Without verification, the student may not be allowed to register for the current term or continue enrollment and will be in jeopardy of losing his or her acceptance to the university as well as all financial aid. Refer to the “Admissions/Applying” section in the JWU campus catalog online for information on verification documents.

Step 3: Submit Required Documentation

Two Recommendation Letters

Please submit two letters of recommendation that acknowledge your potential for successful completion of the academic program. You can ask your references to write a letter of reference or you can download the Letters of Recommendation form. In addition, the Letters of Recommendation form can be completed electronically via Docusign. Your dedicated Online Admissions Associate will send you a direct link. Note: You will need your references' email addresses prior to initiating the electronic signature process.

To submit your letters of recommendation, you can choose from the following options:

  • Docusign: If you complete the process via Docusign, your form will automatically be submitted on your behalf after your reference completes the form.  
  • Mail: College of Online Education, Johnson & Wales University, 115 Cedar St., Providence, RI 02903 
  • Email:onlineadmissions@jwu.edu
  • Fax: 401-598-4553, Attn: College of Online Education Admissions

Statement of Purpose

Describe in 500 words or less why you want to pursue the degree you’re interested in. Include your professional experience, career goals, learning style preferences and potential contributions to the program. You can email your Statement of Purpose to onlineadmissions@jwu.edu or fax it to 401-598-4553.

Use the following questions as a guideline to help you develop your Statement of Purpose:

  • Why are you pursuing a graduate degree program at Johnson & Wales University?
  • What are your current work duties and professional growth goals?
  • How will obtaining a graduate degree help you further your career?
  • What skills and life experiences would make you a unique addition to the online classroom?

Admissions Requirements

If you have a GPA of 2.85 or higher, you are not required to take the GMAT. The minimum GPA required for Official Acceptance is 2.85. Conditional acceptance to certain graduate business programs may be extended to domestic students who are at least 24 years of age, who have a 2.41 – 2.84 cumulative undergraduate grade point average, and who demonstrate significant evidence of professional success. Students granted conditional acceptance may take a maximum of two JWU graduate courses.  If a grade of B or better is earned in each course, the student will be granted full admission to that program.  Students who do not earn a B or better grade in each course will be dismissed from the program and unable to apply to any JWU graduate program.

Don’t Forget to File Your FAFSA

If you plan to use federal financial aid, apply as soon as possible. Filing is free and it’s easy — and it’s the only way to qualify for federal student aid.

  • Apply for a FSA ID. This will allow you to sign your FAFSA electronically. It will come to you via email within 4 hours.
  • Submit your FAFSA. You’ll need your ID (see above), SSN, driver’s license, your latest Federal tax return, and JWU’s school code: 003404

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.

There is no deadline for submitting applications, but students are advised to apply as early as possible before their intended date of enrollment for full consideration, as some programs may become full.

Certain bachelor’s degree programs are selective and require submission of an application at the end of the associate degree program before acceptance into a program. Students should check program descriptions if they are interested in applying for both an associate and a bachelor’s degree program.

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.”
