Contact International Admissions

North Park University’s International Admissions provides assistance to future and current North Park students who are not citizens or legal residents of the United States. Before you arrive at North Park, you will communicate primarily with the admissions team, while the Office of International Affairs staff will help you make your transition to Chicago and keep your paperwork in order once you are here.

Hongji Wang

International Enrollment Coordinator

Hongji joined the team in 2019 with a wealth of experience in advising international students from his time working at DePaul in their international student services department.  Hongji was also an international student himself while he earned his bachelor’s degree so he knows first-hand how to navigate the visa process and benefit from CPT, OPT, and campus employment.  He is currently in pursuit of his PhD in Educational Leadership at DePaul University in Chicago.  If you are interested in one of North Park’s 45+ bachelor degree programs and will require a student visa to study, please contact Hongji with your questions.
