Applying to UIU as an Undergraduate

You’re on your way to joining us at our main campus in Fayette, Iowa!

UIU is a great place for international students who wish to get an American degree in the U.S. and experience American culture. UIU is small enough to allow for numerous opportunities for international students to get involved on campus and to experience sustained interactions with American students. International students are currently involved in International Student Association (ISA), Pride Club, Student Philanthropy Council, and the UIU Communications Club just to name a few.

Like many others, a degree is a great stepping stone for our future. But at UIU, we gain life skills, and the knowledge we gain is applicable across life. It's already had a lot of positivity in my life, particularly building closer relationships with my family.
