On-Campus Visits

Individual On-Campus Visits: We are hosting in-person individual family visits again. In an effort to keep our guests, students, faculty, staff and community as safe as possible, Illinois Wesleyan is adhering to CDC and state guidelines around preventing the spread of the Coronavirus. All visitors MUST wear a face mask and practice social distancing of at least 6 feet while on campus. Thank you!  Schedule your individual visit now!

Group On-Campus Visits:  We regret that we are unable to schedule group visits to campus at this time due to COVID-19. We look forward to hosting group tours when it is safe to do so.

Virtual Visits

In order to provide you with the best virtual visit possible, please allow 72 hours advance notice. 

Individual Virtual Visits: Students and families wanting to meet one on one with an admission counselor, current student, faculty member and/or coach should sign up for an individual virtual visit.

Students and families wanting to get a feel for what IWU has to offer can participate in a 20 minute group presentation by one of our admission counselors and take a virtual tour led by two of our student ambassadors.
