STEP 1: Print and Complete an Intensive English Application Form or Apply Online.
The name you write on your application must match the name in your passport. If possible, please send a photocopy of the page in your passport which contains your official name. If you do not yet have a passport, please write your name on your application as it will likely appear in your passport.
STEP 2 - Submit the Certification of Financial Support
Make sure to print and complete the Certification of Financial Support. Note: Application materials cannot be accepted by email or fax. Please enclose the Certification of Financial Support with your other application materials.
STEP 3: Submit the US$100 Tuition Deposit
Your application must be accompanied by the US$100 tuition deposit. The deposit cannot be waived or paid after you arrive in Wichita. Applications that arrive without the US$100 tuition deposit will not be processed. You may pay by check, money order, credit card, or Western Union. For details on how to pay, please see the back of the attached application form. Note: We cannot accept credit card payments for Nigerian applications. How to Pay
The US$100 tuition deposit is refundable if:
STEP 4: Submit the US$50 Express Mail Fee (Optional) (US$60 Express Mail Fee Starting Fall 2012)
If you would like to have your admission documents sent to you by express mail, please include an additional US$50 for express mail service (US$60 starting Fall 2012). If you do not include the express mail fee with your application, your admission documents will be sent to you by airmail at no extra charge. If you pay the express mail fee and you are not accepted, the express mail fee will be returned to you. Because airmail packages to Africa can sometimes take 6 weeks or longer for delivery, we highly recommend that African students pay the express mail fee to ensure fast delivery of their admission documents. Note: If you are also submitting an International Undergraduate Application, you only need to send one express mail payment (your Intensive English and undergraduate admission documents will be enclosed in the same envelope). How to Pay
STEP 5: Consider Applying for Academic Admission
When applying for a student visa, it may be helpful to have academic admission to an undergraduate or graduate program. If you plan to be an academic student after the completion of your English training, we recommend you also apply for undergraduate or graduate admission. For information on applying to an academic program at Wichita State University, please visit International Education Home.
