Tuition and Cost of Graduate Programs

Accepted international students must meet the international financial requirements before they will be issued an I-20. International students applying to Wheaton College Graduate School are responsible for financing their own education but there are scholarships available for international students which can significantly offset costs.

Billy Graham Center Scholarship Program

The Billy Graham Center Scholarship Program is a unique program that offers financial assistance to carefully selected students who have completed at least two years of Christian service in their national church context and are affiliated with a Christian organization or national denomination that will indicate officially its future plans for an applicant's ministry.

The application for the Graham Center Scholarship is a separate process and materials are not interchangeable.

Certification of Finances and I-20 Information

Upon acceptance into the Graduate School, you will receive a Certification of Finances form to fill out. Provide bank/sponsor information, and pay an advanced deposit. Once these items are submitted, Tristan O’Brien (Manager for Graduate Students) will review your file, then process a financial clearance for an I-20 to be issued. Admitted students must complete the certification of finance by the deadline they have received. For most students, the deadline is June 1. The college will hold the remaining funds from your deposit and apply them to your bill at the appropriate time. The amount that exceeds your bill will be available for your access through your student account once you arrive.
