Study Abroad

Parents

Illinois Wesleyan believes in the importance of providing students with a comprehensive world view and of preparing them to succeed in an interconnected global society.  The University's study abroad programs are an integral part of this effort.

We know that you, as parents of students considering an extended educational experience abroad, have concerns and questions. These pages are meant to provide you with details to help the study abroad experience run smoothly for both you and your daughter or son.  You might also want to download our new Study Abroad Handbook for Parents & Families, which both provides an overview of study abroad and walks families through the study abroad process, from pre-application through re-entry.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions specifically about the programs we offer or about study abroad in general.
