For almost 175 years — longer than Oregon, Washington and California have been states — Willamette University has provided rigorous and personalized education to students who have gone on to shape the political, economic, social and artistic character of the northwest and the world. Willamette professors are internationally recognized scholars. WU leverages our collaborative community and Pacific Northwest setting as we challenge students to transform knowledge into action — the foundation of a successful career and a meaningful life. With numerous academic departments to choose from, our location across the street from the Oregon State Capitol, diverse research programs and rich opportunities for global learning, WU is a welcoming community for ISEP students. 



The benefit covers standard multiple occupancy rooms. Willamette University provides a variety of housing options. Students who choose to live in single rooms, suites or in campus apartments must pay the additional costs themselves.  

Students can rent a "bed pack" from the university. 

Fall and Spring Breaks: Residence halls remain open during breaks within the semester period, but there are no food services on campus.

Academic Year ISEP students are encouraged to select a campus apartment.


Willamette offers 19 meals per week dining plan and assumes one meal per meal period. Additionally $50 Dining Flex Dollars are placed on your student ID card that can be used like a declining balance. 


Calendar Year students are not eligible for ISEP housing or meal benefits over the summer break.

Course Description

As a small liberal arts college, it is typical to take no more than two classes in any academic discipline in one semester. Additionally, not all classes listed in the catalog are offered every semester. ISEP students using the catalog to create course lists should be warned that a required class for them might not be offered in a particular semester, and this cannot always be known until after they have been nominated via ISEP. Previous semester course schedules can sometimes be an indication of offerings of subsequent semesters. Fall course schedules are typically posted in February; Spring course schedules are typically posted in October.
