Academic Policy Details


International Students

The University actively encourages the involvement of international students in its graduate and undergraduate programs. The University is authorized under Federal Law to enroll non-immigrant alien students. International students must meet the same requirements and follow the same admissions procedures employed for U.S. nationals, except that they must, unless English is their first language, demonstrate sufficient knowledge of the English language to benefit from their program of study. This policy is more fully articulated at the link:

Foreign students applying to study in graduate programs at William Woods University may be admitted as independent international students or under the specific auspices of a formal agreement.


International students must submit a certified letter of support from their bank, a sponsor, their family, or another source showing that they have adequate financial resources to provide for their education and living expenses.

Since application materials come from several sources, the entire application cannot be submitted at once. Thus, prospective students are encouraged to coordinate the submission of materials so that #1 above (a completed William Woods University Admission Application Form) arrives at the University first.

William Woods University will acknowledge receipt of the admission application form by email which will provide a quick link to a list of graduate programs and their admission requirements. An admission counselor will be in contact with the applicant to answer any questions and assist in the admission process. The application and other materials may be mailed to The Office of Admissions William Woods University One University Avenue Fulton, MO 65251. The applicant may email or call (800) 995-3199 with any questions.

Completed admission files are reviewed for admission eligibility. Students are notified of their official status and/or need for further information.
