Applying to Wesleyan


Do the questions interest you as much as the answers? Do you tend to see unexpected connections between the things you are studying? Interested in many subjects? Dive deeply into some?  Are you dedicated to making the world around you better?

If you answered yes to these questions, you are the kind of student Wesleyan is looking for.

The Admission Committee will examine carefully all parts of your application to gauge your potential to contribute to Wesleyan and to benefit from the educational opportunities it offers. We are looking for genuine intellectual curiosity, the ability to succeed in a rigorous and well-rounded academic program, and concern for the larger community. Our applicants come from diverse educational backgrounds, and we will consider whether you have taken advantage of the opportunities available to you.

Wesleyan students are intellectual risk-takers--willing to go beyond their comfort zones. They push boundaries. They move comfortably among remarkably varied communities. In and out of the classroom, the Wesleyan experience is unpredictable and exhilarating. If you think that's for you, send us your application!
