Regularly ranked as one of America’s Best Value Private Colleges, our tuition is one of the most affordable in the Southeast. 95% of our students receive financial aid. Plus, there is no out-of-state tuition increase.

PHDs not TAs

90% of Wesleyan’s full-time faculty hold the highest degrees in their fields. A low student-to-professor ratio and classes taught seminar-style assures students receive one-on-one contact and the attention they need.

TOOLS FOR SUCCESS

State-of-the-art science center; award-winning nursing simulation lab; 10,000 sq. ft. art building with 18-seat Macintosh lab; early childhood model classroom; and natural arboretum with outdoor learning laboratory.

BEYOND THE CAMPUS

GRAD SCHOOL

The vast majority of our students are accepted into their first choice graduate programs at prestigious schools around the world often having earned double or triple degrees.

Liberal Arts

Founded in 1836 as the first college in the world chartered to grant degrees to women. Since the first class graduated in 1840, fewer than 15,000 women have had the privilege of saying they earned their degrees at Wesleyan.
