Reach Program

WIU's Reach Program connects students with additional help to stay on track towards college graduation. It is an excellent option for students to receive support and guidance. 

Admission Overview

Reach admission decisions are based on overall grades, core academic courses such as math and English, and factors determined by your answers to a brief series of questions that will be sent to you.

WIU considers applications on a rolling admission basis. For Fall 2023, students are guaranteed full consideration for admission by submitting an application and supporting materials by March 15, 2023. The final application and material submission deadline is August 15, 2023.

Students in the Reach Program must attend the Macomb or the Quad Cities campus. Online only students are not eligible for the Reach program.
