First-year

Applying for colleges is an exciting step in your journey. Wesleyan's office of enrollment is eager to help make this process as simple as possible. Don't hesitate to reach out to your admission counselor at any time. To be considered for admission to as a first year student, we must have the following: completed application for admission, high school transcript or GED, standardized test scores ~ If SAT or ACT results do not appear on your transcripts, arrange for an official report of all college entrance exams to be sent to Wesleyan by the testing agency.

Transfer

Women who started their college careers elsewhere often transfer to Wesleyan and find a place that understands their needs and puts them first. Transfer students are accepted from regionally accredited two-year and four-year institutions. Transfer applicants must be in good academic standing with the last college attended and have a cumulative grade point average of 2.0. Transfer students are encouraged to apply as early as possible because of the time required for receipt of transcripts and the evaluation of transfer credit.

Additional Information

Regularly ranked as one of America’s best value private colleges, Wesleyan’s tuition is one of the most affordable in the Southeast. 99% of our undergraduate students receive financial aid. Plus, there is no tuition increase for out-of-state students. Our average financial aid award, including scholarships, grants, and loans, makes the cost of attendance lower than many public schools. Students may be eligible for merit, leadership, and fine arts awards based on their GPA, test scores, and auditions or art portfolio presentations. This commitment to creating financial access for students has enabled Wesleyan to attract an extremely talented and diverse student body. Most traditional undergraduate students live on campus, which is one of the primary benefits of the distinctive Wesleyan experience. Residence hall living provides a healthy environment for you to grow socially and intellectually. As members of the USA South Athletic Conference, Wesleyan is home to six NCAA Division III sports: basketball, cross country, soccer, softball, tennis, and volleyball. Wesleyan Wolves regularly win All-Conference and All-Academic honors. Plus, our award-winning equestrian team competes in the IHSA in both hunt seat and western. Students may board their horses at our updated stables located right on campus just a short walk from residence halls.
