IWU international students in Uptown Normal


Thank you for your interest in Illinois Wesleyan University! We welcome students from around the world and have designed the following information to assist you with the application process. Please read through it carefully and do not hesitate to contact us if you need further assistance.

While we cannot guarantee that everyone will secure an F-1 student visa successfully, it is important for you to know we offer a great amount of assistance to help with the visa process. We begin working with students soon after their admission to the University to provide step-by-step detailed instructions for how to apply for a visa. 

Illinois Wesleyan is an undergraduate university that offers programs leading to the bachelor's degree. We do not offer any graduate programs. A copy of the course catalog is available in most United States Information Service offices (U.S. Embassies and Consulates). You may also view our course catalog online.

The international application deadline for the fall term was March 15, 2014; however. we are still accepting applications. International students are typically only admitted for the fall semester each year.

If admitted, international students who have completed a year or two of university work may receive credit for previously completed work, if such work is equivalent to courses offered at Illinois Wesleyan (see Information for International Transfer Students).

On-campus housing is available to all currently enrolled international students during the academic year, as well as holidays and breaks.
