IWU Admissions Information


There are many different ways to learn more about Illinois Wesleyan University. If you’re just getting started, you might want to fill out our online request form so that we can send you information about majors, activities, athletics, etc., and we can add you to our mailing list.

Another great source of information is your personal admissions counselor. You can meet with your counselor at your high school, local college fair or on campus, or you can contact your counselor via phone or email. To find out who your counselor is, visit our Admissions Staff page.

Of course, the best way to learn about a college is by seeing it firsthand. The IWU Admissions Office is open year-round for campus visits. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays. During the academic year, we also host campus visits from 9 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturdays. Prospective students and their families are invited to schedule campus visits by calling the Admissions Office at 1-800-332-2498 or going online.

Typical campus visits for prospective students include:

  • A talk with an admission counselor to discuss educational interests and plans.
  • A campus tour accompanied by a student guide.
  • Arrangements can be made in advance to visit specific classes and meet with professors and coaches.

A better picture of college life is possible if visitors come when classes are in session. More classes are available for students to observe on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Classes do not meet on Saturdays.

For any other assistance in making travel plans, please don't hesitate contacting the Admissions Office.
