I am pleased you have indicated an interest in transferring to Illinois Wesleyan University. To apply, you will need to complete the International Student Application. Merit-based scholarships are offered to qualified international applicants with outstanding academic achievement and test scores on the required entrance exams.
For international applicants seeking additional financial assistance, the CSS PROFILE is required for need-based consideration. The PROFILE provides a detailed analysis of an applicant's financial resources. Using this information, we can be “need sensitive” when considering ways to further assist our international students with Illinois Wesleyan University funded scholarships, loans and campus-employment opportunities.
If you have taken college/university-level courses outside of the U.S., your transcripts will need to be evaluated by a transcript evaluation service. Following are the addresses of two transcript evaluation services which, for a fee, will process and evaluate your transcripts for our University.
International Education Research Foundation, Inc.
Credentials Evaluation Service
PO Box 66940
Los Angeles, California 90066
www address: http://www.ierf.org
After you send the appropriate documents needed to one of these evaluation services, it will take approximately six weeks for the evaluation of your transcripts to be completed and sent to Illinois Wesleyan University.
However, this is not necessary if you do not want to transfer any of your previous college/university credits. You must notify us in writing, if you wish to waive transfer of your college/university credits for courses not taken in the U.S. You would then begin at Illinois Wesleyan University as a first-year freshman. You would not be able to reverse this decision at a later date. (Click to download our Waiver of Transfer Credits form.)
Please mail or email the completed waiver form to:
Kimberly Zimmerman, Associate Director of International Admissions
Illinois Wesleyan University
