Reach Program

WIU's Reach Program connects students with mandatory additional help to stay on track towards college graduation. It is an excellent option for students to receive support and guidance. 

Admission Overview

For Fall 2024, students with 2.0 - 2.74 on a 4.0 GPA scale will be reviewed for admission consideration for the Reach Program. The priority deadline is March 1 to send transcripts and complete the application file. Students will be in a pending admissions status until reviewed for an admissions decision in Mid-March.

Reach admission decisions are based on overall GPA and grades in the core academic courses of math and English.

Students in the Reach Program must attend the Macomb or the Quad Cities campus. Online only students are not eligible for the Reach program.
