International Admission Requirements

Wayland has long enjoyed international students and the enhancements they
bring to our classrooms and campuses.


The laws for the admission and teaching of F-1 students have changed
significantly through the years. Today, F-1 students studying in the U. S. must
attend face-to-face classes. The law allows for the addition of a few online
classes, but most courses for F-1 students must be provided through in-person
formats.


While the university offers a wide variety of degrees, both Undergraduate and
Graduate, not all degrees are currently available at all of Wayland’s campuses
in the face-to-face format .


The traditional home campus in Plainview, Texas can provide face-to-face
instruction in many degrees. It is a very good campus for those seeking degrees
in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). F-1 students who
graduate with STEM degrees can qualify for work experiences after graduation
that extend beyond the usual F-1 post-grad experience.


The Wayland San Antonio campus is the only one that has a School of Nursing
and it provides face-to-face instruction in that program.

 

Before you apply to Wayland, it’s best to check with Wayland’s DSO to see if the degree you are seeking is offered at your campus of choice  through in-person classes. The DSO is Debbie Stennett and she can be reached at  stennettd@wbu.edu.
