Millikin is a unique institution and a wonderful place for international students to study. Established more than 110 years ago, Millikin is a highly respected university where you can discover and pursue your full potential, personally and professionally, to do well and to do good. 

Millikin offers a broad choice of majors and minors as well as pre-professional programs and Exploratory Studies  which allows you up to a year to explore and focus your academic and career interests. You may also double major or construct your own interdisciplinary program.  Millikin’s flexibility also allows you to have your major in one college and a minor in another.

Our English Language Center offers two programs to meet your goals: You can choose our Intensive English Program, if you just want to learn English and enjoy the American campus life or the Transition Program to prepare you for academic success at Millikin.

Here you will find  a unique ambiance and have a chance to study in small groups with students from all over the world.  In addition to receiving a personal education from an accredited and reputable university, you'll have access to a variety of campus activities to meet your needs and interests.

Our beautiful campus in the heart of Illinois has a friendly atmosphere where you can easily become involved with many events and student organizations, develop lifelong friendships and truly experience the American culture - both on and off campus.

I will be more than happy to guide you and help you with our admission procedure. I look forward to welcoming you at Millikin University.
