Acceptance to IELI

Once accepted into IELI, you will receive an acceptance letter and an I-20 with further instructions. You will need those documents to apply for an entry visa at the nearest U.S. Embassy or consulate. Full-time students must enter the U.S. on a student visa, not a tourist visa. 

Before you can begin classes, you will need to submit immunization records. You will receive information about how to upload these records in your admissions packet. If you are UNDER AGE 19, your parent or guardian will need to complete this Consent to Treat form.

Admission to the Bridge Program & Creighton University

Admission to Creighton's IELI does not include admission to degree programs at Creighton University, including the Bridge to Creighton.  If you plan to enter Creighton University, you should apply for admission to the University.
