Becoming a Bishop.

NC Wesleyan seeks students with a commitment to learning, creativity, strong academic potential, intellectual curiosity, and a desire to contribute to a community based on our main Core Values.  Admission to Wesleyan is based on academic record, including courses taken, grades earned, and class standing, followed by SAT or ACT test scores.  Achievement in extracurricular activities, community participation, and a motivation to get involved and contribute to the Wesleyan campus community are also taken into consideration.

At North Carolina Wesleyan University, we deliver education that is personal, practical and purpose-driven.

My Wesleyan Experience

I am a recent Magna Cum Laude graduate from North Carolina Wesleyan University with a degree in Computer Information Systems with a concentration in Web Design. North Carolina Wesleyan University has made a positive impact on my life by helping me identify my future career. When I started college, I was unsure of what I wanted to do after I graduated. However, while attending Wesleyan, I was able to grow and figure out what I wanted to do with my life. NCWU has not only professionally, but personally made an impact on my life because I was able to meet some amazing people there that will forever be in my life. I am extremely grateful for my four years at NC Wesleyan.Callie Cline
