Campus Visit

Campus Visits

The best way to learn about any school is through a campus visit. To set up your campus visit, call the Admissions Office at 1-800-332-2498 or sign up online.

Individual Visit
(Individual Students and Families)

A typical visit to campus lasts approximately two hours and includes speaking individually with an admissions counselor and touring the facilities. At Illinois Wesleyan University, great emphasis is placed on individual attention. Our counselors personalize conversations with prospective students based on their unique interests and questions, much in the same way our faculty and staff actively engage with our current students. 

During the school year, seniors and transfer candidates may also sit in on classes and meet with faculty, and student-athletes may meet with coaches.

Diversity and Inclusion Visit Program

Diversity and inclusion are intrinsic to the mission of Illinois Wesleyan University. We are excited to announce our Diversity & Inclusion Visit Program for prospective students and hope you will consider attending. Eligible students will have the opportunity to stay overnight with a current student in a residence hall, observe a class, tour the campus, meet with faculty/staff/students, and attend our 12th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Teach-In event. Space is limited, so please submit your registration today! 

  • Sunday, January 17 - Monday, January 18 



¡Tu Universidad! is a program that allows Latino/a students and their families to explore Illinois Wesleyan in a bilingual setting. This event will enable prospective students to meet with current students, faculty and staff through networking activities, and will help them discover what other successful Latino/a student leaders have found helpful in navigating the college search process. Seniors who have applied for admission or have been admitted will be given preference. Juniors are welcome to apply. Eligibility is also determined by academic qualifications and available space in the program.

Faculty Open House

Another great visit opportunity is an Illinois Wesleyan University faculty open house. An open house provides students and families the opportunity to meet with members of the IWU faculty and admissions staff, tour the facilities, and learn about financial aid and student life. To register for an open house, call the Admissions Office at 1-800-332-2498, or click on a program below.
