Admission Information: International Students

We welcome the diversity and richness that international students bring to the campus community and we encourage applications from well-qualified citizens of other countries. 

The application process is designed to help the Admission Committee identify students who demonstrate the greatest likelihood of benefiting from and contributing to the academic community and campus life.  We are selective in admission which means that we are not able to admit all of the qualified students who apply to us. 

Application for admission to Willamette University is made through the Admission Office.  Interested students may also review the services of our Office of International Education who coordinate international student services on campus and study abroad. 

We look forward to getting to know you through the application process!
