1st Step - Conditional Admission

Conditional admission is the first step to enroll in a WCIU course or the MA in International Development program. Conditional admission provides students the opportunity to determine if WCIU’s Master of Arts in International Development will meet their academic and professional goals and allows individuals interested in our program the chance to benefit from our courses while being introduced to the academic culture and expectations of WCIU. 

Conditionally admitted students may take a maximum of 2 courses, one of which must be the Foundations of Biblical Faith introductory course. Additional courses can only be taken after a student applies for full admission and is accepted.
