Wesleyan is all about and + more… not or.

Curiosity has no limit at Wesleyan—just like your potential.

Your experience will begin at the dynamic intersection of your goals, dreams, and pursuits—all the things that make you who you are, and who you want to be. We want you to discover the unexpected connections and combinations you can create when you have the freedom to explore what you love.        

At Wesleyan, you can chart  your unique academic path and follow it to a life that inspires you. Ask challenging questions, take bold risks, and leap far beyond your comfort zone. Engage with people who are like you—and not at all like you—and shape the future together.

Explorers + Achievers

Wesleyan students are prepared to do meaningful work and engage in the world around them in thoughtful ways. Critical thinkers, effective communicators and opportunity-seekers, Wesleyan students are dedicated to academic exploration and achieving their dreams.

Our Commitment to Affordability

At Wesleyan, equity is a core belief for our community, and we are committed to keeping Wesleyan affordable and accessible. With our need-based only approach to financial aid, we can offer our admitted students the best package possible, with no need for negotiation.
