Admitted Student Days
(for admitted students only)
Join us for Admitted Student Day, during which you and your family will get a real sense of what it will feel like to be a Titan. You'll take a deeper dive into specific ways the IWU educational experience sets our students up for success. You will hear from current students, faculty and alumni about the distinctive characteristics of IWU. The programs include further opportunities to tour campus, breakout sessions focused on post-graduate planning, study abroad, research, student life, and much more.

Individual Visits (Individual Students and Families)
Even if one of our group preview days doesn't fit into your schedule, don't worry! We'd love to set up an individual visit for you. A typical visit to campus lasts approximately two hours and includes speaking with an admissions counselor and touring the campus. 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.
You can also call the Admissions Office at 800-332-2498 to schedule your visit over the phone.

Afterwards, you are invited to stay for Barrio Fiesta, one of the highlights of IWU's year from SALSA (IWU's Spanish and Latino Student Association). Travel Vouchers are available for out-of-state students. All sessions will be translated in Spanish.

We love sharing Illinois Wesleyan with groups of students. To ensure a positive experience for all, we ask that all small groups adhere to the following guidelines:
- Students must be in grades 9 - 12
- Groups are limited to 50 students
- One chaperone must be present for every 10 students attending a campus visit
- A chaperone must accompany every group of students going out on a tour

Although we will do our best, we may be unable to accommodate your group during peak visit times in October, March, or April.
If your group would like to eat lunch on campus in our cafeteria (for a discounted $7.00 per person), please be certain to note that as part of the group visit request form.
