  1. $50 non-refundable application fee. Most applicants can pay online when the application is submitted. Students who need to mail a check or money order can select “Pay by Check” at the end of the application process, then submit the application. A follow up email will be sent 2-4 business days after the submission of the application prompting payment. This email will contain your WIU ID and an option for credit card or wire transfer via PayMyTuition. The WIU ID number is required to make payments by this option.
  2. A copy of your passport to ensure that we have the correct spelling of your name.
  3. Official high school (secondary school) exams, transcripts, or individual mark sheets sent from the school to International Admissions. If these documents are not in English, an official word for word English translation must be submitted with the original documents.
  4. Proof of English proficiency if required.
  5. If you are admitted, you will need to provide financial documentation.

Applications are reviewed in the order that they are completed. You should allow at least four to five weeks after we have received all of your supporting documents to process your application file. Once an admission decision has been made, you will be notified of your next steps at the email address on your application.
