Transient admission

A transient student is a student who is currently enrolled at another regionally accredited institution and wishes to come to Wesleyan and take a course(s) as a non-degree seeking student. Male students may attend as non-degree seeking students.

The student must provide a letter from the Registrar at the home institution stating the student is in good academic standing and has permission from the home institution to attend the specific course. The student must also provide an official transcript from the home institution supporting that she or he has met Wesleyan prerequisites or their equivalent(s) for any course(s) to be completed at Wesleyan. For more information on policies for transient students please review the catalogue.


Students who have left Wesleyan in good academic, financial and social standing are invited to apply for readmission. A student who has withdrawn for a semester or longer must complete the online readmission application. A student who has attended another college or university since attending Wesleyan must submit the online transfer application, a copy of all transcripts and follow all application procedures.

To learn more about the policies and requirements for readmitted students please view the catalogue or speak with an admission representative admissions@wesleyancollege.edu

Non-Degree Seeking

Male and female students who wish to continue their education, may be accepted on a non-degree basis. Non-degree seeking students must complete an application for admission and submit an official high school transcript or GED report and official transcripts from each college attended. Students enrolled on a non-degree basis are not eligible to receive financial aid assistance.

Second Degree

A nontraditional student who holds a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution may earn a second baccalaureate degree by completing the course requirements and prerequisites for the major that she is pursuing under the second degree program. Second degree students must complete an application for admission and submit all transcripts from previously attended institutions. Baccalaureate degrees in an applied area of study and degrees from foreign institutions must be evaluated individually. A minimum of 30 semester hours is required to earn a second baccalaureate degree from Wesleyan.

Auditing Courses

Auditing a course allows a student to take a class without receiving a grade or credit for a course. Students who wish to audit a class must be enrolled either as a degree-seeking or non-degree seeking student. Once enrolled, a student may register to audit a class during the drop/take period, with the exception of studio art class or laboratory course. The student may register to audit a studio art class or laboratory course on the last day of drop/take and with the written permission of the instructor teaching the course. The class attendance policy for the auditing student will be the same as required for the student taking the course for credit. Auditors are required to pay all fees that may be associated with the course (lab fee, studio art fees, activity fees, travel, et cetera). Consult the Business Office regarding fees for auditing courses. No individual is eligible to audit any nursing (NUR) course.

Listing of Fees for all programs can be found here.
