If you would like to apply to the UESL Program, complete the UESL Application Form. Send the application with a Bank Statement showing at least $5,625 for each quarter, a high school or university graduation document, and a copy of your passport information page with your photo. A $50 application fee will be assessed later.

UESL is piloting an electronic payment process which we hope will be easier to use and which will speed up processing of application fees, housing and mailing costs.

Payments can be made once you are accepted to the CWU UESL Program and have your CWU Student ID number. You will receive your CWU Student ID number from us.  You cannot make a payment until you have this number. When you have your ID number:

  1. Go to the Student Accounts Online Payments page.
  2. Look for: "Click here to make a payment."
  3. Follow the directions.

If this method of payment does not work for you, please contact the UESL Office to make other arrangements.

The UESL Program will send all documents by regular mail. If you want to receive them by express mail, you need to pay the express mail fee. If you ask the UESL Program, we can tell you the express mail fee to your country.


To reserve a residence hall room on campus, please print out the Housing Application and send it to us. You will then be asked to pay a $200 deposit online with the system described above.

If you are transferring from a US school, please print out the Transfer Form. Complete the top part and give the form to your advisor.
