International Application for Admission

Please note:

  • The application system will be unavailable from December 21, 2022 at 4:30 PM CST to January 4, 2023 at 8:00 AM CST due the closure of the University for the holiday break. No applications will be accepted during this time.
  • Applicants selecting Spring 2023 will automatically be changed to Fall 2023 unless they are currently in the US and requesting a transfer.
  • Applicants that are already in the US and intend to transfer to WIU for Spring 2023 must submit the application, application fee & application documents prior to December 2nd. Financial documents for transfer students must be submitted on or before December 16th.
  • There is a nonrefundable $50 USD fee for new students submitting an application. Applicants who cannot pay by credit card via the application should select to pay by check or money order before submitting the application. A follow up email will be sent 2-4 business days after the submission of the application. This email will request payment by check/money order (drawn on a US bank) or by credit card/wire transfer via PayMyTuition. Your application will not be processed until payment is received.
  • Master's and doctoral degree applicants should apply for FALL or SPRING intake. Online attendance only is allowed in the summer sessions. If you wish to enroll online for a summer session, please indicate this in the comments section of the application. Graduate student applications for summer intake will be deferred to fall unless otherwise noted.
  • Your application and application fee is valid for two consecutive years from the first application date (e.g., Fall 2022 is valid through Fall 2024 semester). If you have applied within the last two years but did not attend, do not complete the online application. Instead, please submit the Request to Reactivate Application form.
  • Before continuing, please ensure that you are running the most current version of a forms-capable Internet browser. If necessary, download and install the most recent version of your browser (Microsoft Edge, Chrome or Firefox are highly recommended). We cannot be responsible for problems or delays caused by outdated or non-standard software.
