Ma in INternational Development

Conditional Admission

All prospective students desiring to enter WCIU's MA program, or take the Foundations of Biblical Faith intro course must first apply under conditional admission.

We believe conditional admission allows individuals interested in our program to benefit from our courses while being introduced to the academic culture of WCIU.

Conditionally admitted students are allowed to take a maximum of 2 courses(5 credits) and must earn a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. Additional courses can only be taken if a student applies for full admission and is accepted.
