As an ISEP student, you can build your own program by choosing your courses from a variety of fields. Use the notes for course searching to help you find which courses are available.

Among Nebraska Wesleyan’s more than 44 academic areas, biology, education, theatre, English and history are noteworthy. Impressive are the curriculum and laboratories of the Division of Natural Sciences. Field experiences are also available to ISEP participants. Through the Department of Education, students may observe and work with teachers at local elementary and secondary schools. Visits to nearby reservations (usually during the summer) are included in Native American history and culture courses.


Housing will be available in campus residence halls for students who choose to stay on campus.  ISEP students will be placed in one of the NWU campus residence halls: Centennial, Johnson, Plainsman or Burt Hall. 


All rooms are equipped with bed, closet, dresser, desk, chair, bed sheets, pillow & comforter (same as duvet) for each occupant. All rooms are hard wired for internet if you want to bring your laptop, but all buildings also have computer labs (many open 24 hours) plus wireless internet. All campus residence halls have a very small kitchen (range, oven, microwave, refrigerator & limited number of pots, pans, dishes), recreational area w/ pool table, ping-pong table, piano & study lounge.



Students receive a meal plan at the university cafeteria. Students may also use the residence hall kitchen to cook their own meals or they may eat at a restaurant. Restaurants & grocery stores are within walking distance from campus.


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