William Peace Pathways

William Peace University is proud to partner with Wake Technical Community College to reward students who have earned their AA/AS prior to enrollment at WPU.

Transferring from Wake Tech, students are encouraged and rewarded with significant financial support to pursue their bachelor’s degree at WPU. The broad array of degree offerings and the immersive learning environment of WPU, provide a proven pathway of career success.

Transfer students who have earned an Associates degree from Wake Technical Community College, and maintained a GPA of 3.0 or higher, are eligible for up to $16,000 (depending on your GPA, there are varying scholarship amounts). These scholarship is renewable each year pending good academic standing. Additional scholarship opportunities are available for high-achieving students. For a GPA under 3.0, a variety of scholarship options may also be available. Be certain to submit your FAFSA as you may qualify for additional financial assistance.

“Nearly all graduates from WTCC who transfer to WPU receive some form of merit based scholarship and are consistently high achievers during their Pacer experience.”

As you make a commitment to yourself to achieve career success, we will also make a commitment to offer pathways for financial support. One of the great benefits of WPU Is our passion for students and our continued efforts to help them succeed—in the classroom and in their future endeavors.

We make it EASY as 1 – 2 – 3:
  • For students earning an AA/AS from Wake Tech Community College – APPLY to transfer to WPU
  • Based on your academic achievements/GPA – You are eligible for up to $18,000 in Scholarship

“Transferring to Peace from Wake Tech was seamless. After applying, I was assigned an academic advisor who quickly became a mentor. I had individualized attention from everyone I met. Accustomed to the relatively small class-sizes at Wake Tech, I continued to experience that at Peace along with one-on-one discussions with instructors/professors. This individualized attention from administration staff and professors prepared me for a career by ensuring that all my academic needs were met and that my passions were nurtured and encouraged. I could not be happier with the experience and education I received from both institutions.”
