Admissions Information

The Office of Admissions evaluates each candidate for admission on an individual basis and admission decisions are made based on criteria set each year.

A first-year applicant is required to complete an application for admission, submit a transcript(s) from high school or a high school equivalency certificate based on the GED tests. Final official transcripts should be submitted to the University prior to the first day of classes.

In response to COVID-19 restrictions limiting the ACT and SAT offerings across the US, all first-year applicants for Fall 2021 and Spring 2021 semesters will not be required to submit a standardized test score to complete the application.

Students accepting their offer of admission to IW are asked to submit an enrollment deposit, Residential students, $150 and Commuter students, $100. The enrollment deposit must be paid prior to course registration and is applied toward the first semester’s tuition. Students wishing a refund of their enrollment deposit should submit a written request to the Office of Admissions by May 1 for fall semester and December 1 for spring semester.

Iowa Wesleyan prides itself on being a four-year residential institution providing an environment where students can grow and discover themselves. Residence life is intended to create opportunities for students to develop deeper relationships that turn acquaintances into friends and family. Go to Campus Housing for more information
