Enrollment Deposit

Students accepting their offer of admission to Iowa Wesleyan University should submit their enrollment deposit in the amount of $150 for resident students and $100 for commuter students. This amount is applied toward the first semester’s tuition and must be paid prior to course registration. Students wishing a refund of their enrollment deposit should contact their Admissions Counselor by May 1 to enroll for fall semester or December 1 for spring semester.

Contact the Office Admissions at 1-800-582-2383 to pay your deposit with a credit card, or submit the enrollment deposit form with a check, cash or money order.

Campus E-Mail

After you pay your enrollment deposit, you will be able to access your Iowa Wesleyan e-mail account. This will allow you to stay completely connected with everything happening on campus.

To activate your student e-mail account, log onto and complete the requested information. Once the form and credentials are verified, your account will be enabled.

Housing & Wesleyan Dining

Immunization Requirements

All new first-year and transfer students entering Iowa Wesleyan University must provide a written confirmation from their family physician that the student has the following:

1. Immunization Records

  • Proof and date of having had measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) or
  • Documentation of immunization for MMR after 1980 or
  • Written recommendation from your physician that you should not receive the MMR immunization at this time.

2. Mantoux TB skin test within the past year. If you have previously tested positive for TB, please notify the campus nurse prior to additional testing.

Residential students must submit their immunization records and TB skin test results prior to moving onto campus. Students not submitting records will not be allowed to move into campus housing.

Summer Registration Days

Attending one of the Summer Registration events will be an important step for you to take before coming to Fall Orientation in August. During Summer Registration, you will work with a faculty advisor to select your fall semester classes, meet with students and staff from areas across campus, and get acquainted with your future classmates. It will also provide you the opportunity to work out all the final details before you officially become an Iowa Wesleyan student this fall.

Summer Registration will be held on Monday, July 14. Sign-up online to reserve your spot during one of our summer events!

Transfer Students

Course registration for new transfer students will be held during Summer orientation, or will occur on an individual basis. All transfer students will be assigned an academic advisor as soon as they submit their enrollment deposit. Contact the Office of Admissions to pay your enrollment deposit and to schedule an appointment to register for your fall classes.
