Undergraduate Admissions

Complete WIU Classes Prior to Graduation from High School


Western Illinois University is offering high school seniors an opportunity to complete Western classes prior to graduation from high school. Participating students will receive an automatic  scholarship and can benefit from Western's unique Cost Guarantee that locks in tuition, fee, room, and meal plan rates for four years.

High school seniors who choose to enroll in Western courses will receive an automatic scholarship that covers two-thirds of their per credit hour tuition cost. For example, students enrolled in a three-credit hour course would normally expect to pay $854.10 in tuition costs. With the automatic scholarship, students would pay $284.70 and receive a scholarship to cover the remaining $569.40 in tuition costs. High school students who are enrolled at Western are not charged student fees or on-campus housing.
