Center for International Studies


Pickup Request 

The Center for International Studies staff offers new international students a pickup service during the Orientation week from either the Quad-Cities International Airport (code: MLI) or the Macomb train station via Amtrak. To use the pickup service, arrange your travel plans to arrive during the pickup period (for exact dates, see below), and then submit the pickup request form below. We'll be sure one of our staff or volunteers is there to meet you and drive you to campus.     Please fill out the form by Friday, May 13th.

Summer 2016 orientation free pickup period:  Tuesday, May 17 - Wednesday, May 18

Fall 2016 orientation: form will be available after May 18th.

PLEASE NOTE:  If you arrive before or after the scheduled pickup period, we cannot provide you with transportation.

Also, unfortunately, we are not allowed to transport anyone other than WIU students in university vehicles. If you are traveling with family or friends who will not be students, please contact us. We can help you find other transportation arrangements.

If your travel plans change (for example, the train is cancelled or you do not get on the train), please email us at
